Church Rd Pump Station Improvements

The Village of Bensenville owns and operates the 1.8 million gallon underground reservoir as well as 500,000-gallon water tower along Church Rd, which is a key facility for the intake and distribution of domestic water throughout the Village. This facility is scheduled to receive electrical and mechanical upgrades as part of this project to replace the original equipment from 1959. The station requires permanent upgrades to effectively operate the facility which will continue to serve the Village for years to come. This locally funded project will begin early May 2020 and will be substantially completed by September 1, 2020. The final completion date is September 30, 2020.
