Project Information

This Project Includes: The scope of the project involves a site assessment of the 600,000 gallon concrete tank and the associated pump station facility that was built in 1935. This includes an update to the water system analysis report, including where to best locate a replacement water storage facility. The second part of the project will reconstruct the commuter parking lot with additional spaces, new lighting and a message board.

Project Location:
50 East St. Charles Road

Why is this project necessary? The water reservoir at 50 East St. Charles Road has exceeded its service life. The future replacement water storage facility will provide a more efficient and responsive water supply network, allowing the Village to continue meeting all IEPA and Village standards into the future.

How does this benefit the Village? The benefits of the project will be an improved and more resilient water distribution network regarding fire flow, water pressure and water quality. Other benefits will be additional commuter parking and a message board to inform all travelers in the St. Charles corridor of various Village events and important notices.

Will this impact traffic and parking? There may be short-term lane reductions on St. Charles Road, as work progress and construction equipment and materials enter and leave the site. However, the primary impact will be limited to commuter parking, which will be relocated within the downtown area.
