A new sewer plant?
WALNUT — The village of Walnut’s engineer presented the preliminary plans for updating the village’s sewer plant this week.
Matt Hansen of Willett & Hoffman engineering firm of Dixon presented the plans for a $2 million upgrade and update for the village’s sewage plant. This plan will begin with a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 16 in the village meeting room. The public meeting will allow residents an opportunity to hear the presentation of the plans and to ask questions. After this initial public meeting, there will be an additional 10-day period during which residents can submit written questions and comments to the village trustees.
The original sewage plant was built in 1965; a lagoon was added in the 1980s; and in 1990 the village received a grant for the construction of liquid storage. There have been no additions to the system since the 1990 construction. Only general maintenance has been done to keep the facility in good operating condition. Hansen said his firm generally states sewage plant mechanicals and structures have a life span of 25 years. He commended the village on their diligence with the maintenance and upkeep of their system to keep it in operation for almost 50 years.
