TAI provided planning, design, and construction phase engineering services related to the replacement of a regional lift station on Buena Vista Golf Course (DeKalb Park District) for the DeKalb Sanitary District. The project included the construction of a new cast-in-place wet well and valve room structure with a brick and block building which houses the electrical/control room and generator room. The lift station was designed for phased expansion to meet the community’s long-term needs and includes room for four VFD controlled submersible pumps. The first phase included two submersible pumps, magnetic flow meter, SCADA communication, and back-up generator.

The project was funded through the ARRA program. The improvements were substantially completed in December 2010 and final restoration was completed in April 2011.
