Below is a listing of the Projects. Reports and Studies that are being conducted for the City of Carbondale:
CIP No. WS0202
The project is to design and construct a new water storage facility on Park Street and close and abandon the below ground water wells at the old water treatment plant on Wall Street.
Preliminary Drawing of CIP Project PB0001
The City of Carbondale is going forward on its CIP Project No. PB0001 to complete a building plan and site layout, develop a design, produce construction plans and specifications, obtain all necessary construction permits, and provide all necessary construction management assistance for a new public fire station. Preliminary space requirements include 4,000 square feet of enclosed building to provide living space and office for fire fighters; a four bay 3,840 square foot garage for fire vehicles and 3,000 square feet of storage. The facilities shall include a hose drying tower, room for training, standby power and associated parking. The existing west side fire station, constructed in 1960 is currently operating beyond its designed capacity for both personnel and equipment. In recent years the unreinforced masonry facility has begun to show signs of structural and mechanical deterioration. An engineering study conducted in the fall of 2000 revealed the existing facility is especially vulnerable to seismic activity, and apparatus would most likely become trapped in the event of an earthquake. Illinois Department of Transportation development of the East-West Couple has caused increased traffic at the Walnut Street/Oakland Avenue intersection, and made apparatus egress difficult. Improved access to travel routes will provide for safer and more efficient emergency response to residential areas on the west side of town.
Sanitary Sewer Inflow Study
The City of Carbondale has initiated the study to reduce flows to their wastewater treatment plants. This will reduce operating cost and help to maintain compliance with state and federal environmental regulations. This study is actively pursuing the City’s sewer system for areas that have a potential to surcharge. For more information on the study, access the following link.
