Village Board Approves Design Engineering Contract for Storm Water Improvement Project

At the June 21, 2023 Village Board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved an engineering contract with Robinson Engineering to design and prepare bidding documents aimed at mitigating the flooding that is occurring in Grassmere Farm subdivision, Haverton Way, Duck Pond Ln., and IL Route 59.

The cause of the flooding is the result of failed storm water conveyance systems including collapsed field tiles over the past 10 years.The failed systems include storm pipes and open swales that generally convey storm water from the west (Haverton subdivision area) to the east under IL Route 59 to Grassmere Subdivision and then under IL Route 22 north through Oaksbury subdivision to Honey Lake.

The scope of the project although relatively simple in design, the planned improvements will require approval from multiple regulatory agencies having Jurisdiction including Army Corp of Engineers, Illinois Department of Transportation, Lake County Stormwater Management Commission, and Illinois Department of Natural Resources.The project will impact flood plain areas and wetlands.Permitting from the various agencies will be a significant part of the project.

The Village is in que for grant funding for the project of up to $2.5 million from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.The grant funding is being coordinated and administered by the Lake County Storm Water Management Commission.The grant funding is not guaranteed.

The current schedule for the project is for the design engineering to be completed in the spring of 2024, the permit approval from the regulatory agencies to be completed in the summer of 2024, and the project is expected to start in the in the fall/winter of 2024.Please know that the schedule may be extended due to multiple state regulatory agencies permitting process.
