Joint resolution authorizing an Intergovernmental Agreement for the Lake County's diversion of flow into Buffalo Grove's force main.

Staff Summary
* The Village of Buffalo Grove owns and operates its Port Clinton Lift Station and sanitary sewer force main on Port Clinton Road which discharges into the County's Des Plaines River Water Reclamation Facility.
* The County owns and operates the Teal Lane Lift Station and sanitary sewer force main, which is located along Port Clinton Road, near the Village's lift station and force main.
* The County sanitary sewer system, downstream from the Port Clinton and Illinois Route 83 area, has sewage capacity limitations that could be eliminated by diverting the Teal Lane Lift Station sewage flow into the Village's Port Clinton Lift Station and force main.
* The Village's Port Clinton Lift Station and force main have excess capacity available to accept the County's sewage flow.
* The County will design and construct a new force main to divert the flow from the Teal Lane Lift Station to the Port Clinton Lift Station. In addition, the County must reimburse the Village for recapture fees associated with the original construction of the Port Clinton Lift Station and pay users fees to the Village based upon the sewage flow into their lift station.
* The proposed agreement is for 30 years. This sewage diversion will eliminate the need for the County to perform extensive downstream improvements to its sewer systems. The cost to partner with Buffalo Grove is $780,000 as compared with an estimated $1,200,000 for the County to complete downstream improvements.
* This sewage diversion will eliminate the need for the County to perform extensive downstream improvements to its sewer systems.
