RJN Group Inc. (RJN), a consulting engineering and specialty field services firm, has a new contract with the Village of Buffalo Grove (IL) for professional engineering and specialty field services to help meet short-term program requirements of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) Infiltration/Inflow Control Program (IICP).
Among the services RJN will provide are:
- Closed-Circuit Televising (CCTV) Review of Gravity Sewers
- Smoke Testing
- Manhole Inspections
- Dyed Water Flooding
- Lift Station Inspections
- Annual Reporting
Previously, RJN completed the initial MWRD submittal requirements for Buffalo Grove. Using the data collected from these condition assessments, the Village will develop a targeted, prioritized rehabilitation program to reduce inflow and infiltration entering the sanitary sewer system. RJN will also develop a Private Sector Program (PSP) and a Long-Term Operations and Maintenance Program (LTOMP) as required by the MWRD IICP.
This program will bring Buffalo Grove into compliance with MWRD IICP requirements by the end of 2019. RJN is in the process of completing similar MWRD compliance projects for other cities and villages in Illinois, including Des Plaines, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Schaumburg and Wilmette.
Buffalo Grove is located 35 miles northwest of Chicago and has a population of 42,000 residents. The sanitary sewers are in the Cook County portion of the Village, and are tributary to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. (800) 227-7838, rjn.com
