Staff Summary
* The Wildwood Water System serves a population of approximately 14,000 in unincorporated areas including Third Lake, Mariners Cove, Arbor Vista, CLC and various retail/commercial establishments in the vicinity. The System receives Lake Michigan water from the Central Lake County Joint Action Water Agency (CLCJAWA) at two delivery stations and the system requires additional storage capacity to protect users in the event of increased water demand or emergency circumstances.
* In 2019, Lake County Public Works sought engineering services for water facilities analysis, design, and construction oversight through a full Statement of Interest (SOI) competitive process. The selected firm for water facilities analysis, design and construction oversight was RHMG Engineers, Inc.
* Under the aforementioned contract, RHMG Engineers, Inc. recently completed a study to determine the required system storage and analyzed several locations for the construction of a new water tower since the existing John Mogg Tower Site is not large enough to accommodate a new water tower. The recommended location for a new water tower is a property owned by Lake County located on the south side of Gages Lake Road at Dady Court.
* This agreement is a continuation of the study and provides for preliminary and final engineering design services for the new 1.25 million-gallon water tower in the Wildwood Water System.
