Bid Package 3 Booster Stations 1 and 2 Improvements

Construction of the improvements at Booster Stations 1 and 2 in Oak Forest are being financed in part by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes replacement of a booster station at Cicero Avenue and Interstate 57, and the addition of new pumps at a second booster station at Central Avenue and 163rd Street. These facilities, which are owned and operated by the Village of Oak Lawn, are part of a regional water system that provides drinking water to Oak Lawn, Oak Forest, and 10 other communities. Once construction is complete, the improvements will allow the Village to provide more water with greater reliability to the residents of Tinley Park, Mokena, New Lenox, Country Club Hills, Matteson, and Olympia Fields. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects and delivers one of our most valuable resources: water. No Oak Lawn tax dollars will be used to fund these improvements.  The project will be paid for by rate payers, in other words paid for by the water users.
