Project Description: The existing Wildwood Water System currently serves several unincorporated areas including Wildwood, Third Lake, Mariners Cove, Arbor Vista, Liberty Acres, College of Lake County and various retail/commercial development in the vicinity. Storage within the system is currently comprised of one elevated tank and two ground storage reservoirs. Lake County Public Works engaged a consultant to investigate the total recommended storage volume for the water system and to develop potential alternatives for providing additional water storage for the area.
In accordance with recommendations of the consultant, LCPW will construct a 1.25 million gallon water tower at 18534 W. Old Gages Lake Rd., Grayslake IL to provide 72 hours of emergency storage reserves. Accompanying water main improvements and valve installations will occur.
Brush clearing, survey and design work will occur in 2021. Construction anticipated within the 2022-2026 Capital Improvement Program.
