Project Location: From Vernon Hills West Pump Station located in Deerpath Park, heading east along the bike path to Vernon Hills Memorial Arbor Theater and continuing east along Cougar Way to the New Century Town Water Reclamation Facility in Vernon Hills. Location Map (PDF)

Project Description:  Field investigation and evaluation of the condition of two 16-inch force mains that deliver sewage from the Vernon Hills West Pump Station to the New Century Town Water Reclamation Facility. The assessment will evaluate 7,000 feet of advanced age pipe to determine next steps for rehabilitation of the force mains.

Residents and park users will observe truck traffic, pit excavation equipment noise, and bike path closures. The excavation location map shows where the contractor will be digging. Disturbed areas will be repaired in a timely manner.

Current Phase/Anticipated Schedule:

Force main assessment is underway and will determine next steps. Strategic excavations will occur near the Kids’ Castle playground and nearby bike path in early November to access critical parts of the force main, and the areas will be restored promptly. The excavation location map shows where the contractor will be digging. The bike path will require closure, and signage will be provided. Design and construction are anticipated to occur within the 2022-2026 Capital Improvement Program.
