Mill Creek Water Reclamation Facility Improvements (ARPA funded)

Project Location:  Off of Ancona Ave, located east of Hunt Club Road and north of Sand Lake Road, in the Village of Old Mill Creek. 

Project Description:  The Lake County Board provided federal ARPA funding for the project. With this funding, we are able to undertake this project sooner without delaying or impacting other projects in the Capital Plan. The projects at the Mill Creek Water Reclamation Facility made possible by this federal funding including the installation of new covers of our secondary clarifiers and replacement of our existing UV disinfection system. The improvements will improve efficiencies, provide additional capacity and provide better maintenance/operation effectiveness. The existing UV disinfection system is no longer readily supported with parts and maintenance and requires an upgrade for continued use.

All improvements are intended to be 100% funded by ARPA. The UV disinfection system was awarded $1 million, and the clarifier covers are part of a $6.3 million project spanning three water reclamation facilities. Should project costs exceed these values, Lake County Public Works ratepayer dollars will be applied to the project.
