Frankfort Elevated Tank, Wells, and Water Treatment Plant 

Overview

The Village needed additional water system capacity to serve the southern extents of the Village’s service area and required two new wells, an elevated tank, and a water treatment plant to be designed and constructed as soon as possible in order to provide sufficient water for the summer peak demand period.

Scope
  • Assisted in site selection based on ground elevation and proximity to the 12” water main

  • Designed tank’s access driveway and performed wetland delineations since the road crosses through a floodplain and wetlands

  • Prepared the project plan and environmental documentation

  • Expedited the design components to meet the Village’s accelerated project timeframe

  • Assisted the Village through the IEPA application process, facilitating 0% IEPA Low Interest Loan with 25% forgiveness

  • Extended 12” water main from an existing distribution system to new tank location

 

Results
  • Corrected system pressure deficiencies experienced during peak demand period

  • Reduced the Village’s current IEPA recommended storage deficiency by 50%

  • Increased storage capacity to meet current demands and correct system pressure deficiencies

  • Project savings of $672,000
