Project Location: Various locations in Vernon Hills
Project Description: The Vernon Hills water system serves residents of the Village of Vernon Hills and surrounding areas, serving a total population of more than 25,000 people. The Vernon Hills Water System includes four reservoirs, two elevated water towers and two water delivery structures that are key components of this water distribution system that has been in continuous service for more than 35 years.
Major electrical and mechanical equipment at eight facilities such as motor control centers, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) equipment, water flow control valves, and water level control sensors will be replaced and upgraded to ensure safe and continuous operation of this water system. These upgrades will also allow LCPW to monitor the system remotely and can help reduce the need for Public Works staff to drive around to all of these sites, therefore providing an environmental benefit as well.
Current Information: Mechanical system and electrical equipment work is wrapping up at the various locations, with the project nearing completion.
This project is under construction and anticipated to be completed in 2021.
