Susan Novak, P.E. presented the Village of Fox Lake Interconnect Phase 2 Project at the Designated Erosion Control Inspector Workshop on Tuesday, February 23, 2021. This $10,700,000 project consists of 15,000 lineal feet of 16-inch water main, 10,000 lineal feet of 24-inch sanitary sewer, 5,000 lineal feet of 8-inch force main. The project is adjacent to Nippersink Lake and has approximately 2,500 lineal feet of wetlands and open water crossings.

Susan’s presentation reviewed the regulatory compliance measures, cost considerations, design parameters, and pre-construction coordination of dewatering efforts for a linear project. She also included information about the preliminary design assumptions, subsurface condition testing, site impacts analysis, environmental concerns, construction access, design challenges, and discharge locations.
