Waste Treatment Plant Tour

On Tuesday May 18th the Lindenhurst Lakes Commission was given a tour of the state of the art facility on Grass Lake Road.  Village engineer Wes Welch took us through a plant having a 2 million gallon per day capacity, which is about twice the current water pumped and sewage treated per day.  The Village has 52 miles of water mains and 56 miles of sanitary sewers under its 4 sq. miles serving a population of 14,259 (2003 special census). 

Detailed information available below.

Thank you Wes for taking special time to give us an interesting and informative tour.
