The Village's 2011 Comprehensive Facility Plan outlines recommendations for significant improvements/additions to the combined sewer system which serves approximately the eastern half of the Village. Recommended improvements for the north combined area were constructed in 2011, 2014 and 2016. To address both the regulatory feasibility and the environmental impacts of proposed improvements to the southeast area system, the Village commissioned a Combined Sewer Environmental Assessment which was completed in early 2017.
Service improvements evaluated by MMSD in the same area were later incorporated in the CSSA report's recommendations which include multiple construction and funding phases. The initial phase is to be designed, constructed and funded by MMSD and is anticipated to be constructed in 2019-2021.
The identified improvements will be constructed over ten years. Proposed road reconstruction and water system improvements will be incorporated into this program to realize construction efficiencies and cost savings.
