A lift station on Dormy Lane will be replaced this year at a cost of $353,500 because it has become obsolete and poses a danger to the health and safety of village employees.
The project involves abandoning the station and replacing it with a pre-case submersible station with new pumps, valves and pipes with a new control panel and natural gas generator, according to staff reports.
Currently, the lift station is a can-style type that requires employees gain access into an underground vault for routine maintenance and repairs.
It was installed in 1974 and serves the Paganica subdivision and the Barrington Hills Count Club Lift station.
Barrington’s Board of Trustees voted to grant the contract to Campanella & Sons Inc., based in Wentworth, which had the lowest bid at $353,500. It was 9 percent lower than original estimates, staff said.
Campanella & Sons will do the project this year.
