Water Plant Improvements

June 9, 2017

Chazen was retained by the Village to evaluate a series of 20 groundwater spring boxes and to provide treatment for drinking water deemed to be Groundwater Under the Direct Influence of Surface Water. After considering several alternatives, the Village decided to expand its existing water treatment plant to use cartridge filtration and to continue to use chlorination as a disinfectant. The treatment plant expansion designed by Chazen provides for roughing filters, a five-micron filter series and a one-micron absolute finishing filter prior to disinfection and pumping to a 1.0MG storage tank.
