In March 2021, the DuPage County Public Works Department will commence with the construction of the Nordic Wastewater Treatment Plant Rehabilitation Project at the Nordic Park Wastewater Treatment Plant located at 649 S. Rohlwing Road, Itasca, IL 60143. The Nordic Wastewater Treatment Plant Rehabilitation Project is financed by the Clean Water 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 project includes improvements to the site piping and Raw Sewage Pumping/Screening Structure, construction of a new Operations Structure, Biological Process, as well as two new Tertiary Clarifiers, UV disinfection, RAS/WAS pumping, and Sludge Storage. In addition, the project also includes upgrades to the electrical and SCADA systems. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in DuPage County, near Irving Park Road and Lake Street along Route 53. The SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
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. The Drainage Division, also under the
jurisdiction of the Department of Public Works, is responsible for providing assistance with residential and commercial drainage concerns in unincorporated portions of DuPage County.
