Vernon Hills (NCT) Water Reclamation Facility Improvements (ARPA funded)
Project Location: South of the Vernon Hills High School, on American Way in the Village of Vernon Hills.
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 project at the Vernon Hills (NCT) Water Reclamation Facility made possible by this funding includes the installation of new covers for our secondary clarifiers. The project will improve efficiencies, provide additional capacity and provide better maintenance/operation effectiveness.
This project is supported in whole by federal award number 21.027 awarded to Lake County by the U.S. Department of the Treasury in the amount of $6.3 million for disc filter and clarifier covers which span three water reclamation facilities. In all cases, the ARPA funds represent 100% of total project funding.
