DuPage Water Connection Assistance Program
Construction of electrical infrastructure upgrades to the Woodridge-Greene Valley and the Knollwood Wastewater Reclamation Facilities has been awarded to Aldridge Electric, Inc. at the April 12, 2022 DuPage County Board Meeting. This project includes
replacing the electrical systems at both facilities, including the main switch gears, underground cables, substations, and backup electrical generators. The project will provide improved reliability and resiliency to the electric systems for these
two facilities serving DuPage County. The project is financed by the Water Pollution Control State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund
these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The Department of Public Works aims to provide water and sewer services to portions of DuPage County consisting of approximately 200,000 residents. These services include the collection, transmission and treatment of wastewater, as well as the production,
transmission and delivery of potable water service. The Department is required to meet all applicable local, state, and federal laws pertaining to the treatment of wastewater and the delivery of drinking water.
Above is a short video with a narrative of the treatment process at the DuPage County Woodridge Greene Valley Wastewater Treatment Facility.
