Donohue and Associates will combine all existing data collected during its study of the village sanitary and storm sewers and utility data collected by the village for its geographical mapping system to create a three-dimensional model to aid the Village Board in its development of a final plan to upgrade its storm and sanitary sewer systems.
The model will lay out storm and sewer improvements for the 500 year storm, the highest level of protection suggested in the Donohue report.
The model will show where there are potential conflicts that would result from that proposal and help staff determine if Level 3 protection is feasible.
"The board is committed to as much protection as physically feasible and financially possible," said Trustee Jim Roemer, running the meeting in the absence of Village President Julie Siegel.
Village Manager Patrick DeGrave said the report would let the village determine what is physically possible.
"This would be a huge tool to see what capabilities are there for burying this underground," he said.
The Village Board on Monday night approved a $11,410 contract with Donohue for the study. The analysis can be done in 60 to 80 hours of Donohue's time, Village Engineer Dan Naze said, with the board likely receiving the report in March.
