Palatine, County Forest Preserve To Partner Up

Saturday, July 26, 2014
Palatine Journal Online

Palatine councilmen gave Village Manager Reid Ottesen authorization to negotiate and execute an intergovernmental agreement with the Forest Preserve District of Cook County to allow the district to connect Camp Reinberg to the village’s sanitary sewer system.

The forest preserve district developed a master plan to update and enhance existing campground facilities throughout the county that will be open to various grounds and the general public. Camp Reinberg, located on Quentin Road north of Dundee Road is one of those facilities

The district’s ultimate plan is to renovate the existing dining hall and security building, provide tent sites, small cabins, a limited number of RV sites and toilet and shower facilities. The maximum capacity will be 217 persons or campers.

According to village officials, the existing campground has a failed septic system and the district would like to connect to the village’s sanitary sewer system.

An engineering study shows that the system can handle the campground, but upgrades are needed to a lift station to accommodate the entire potential service area.

As part of the agreement, the district will construct, own and maintain all the facilities necessary to connect the campground to the Palatine system.

They will also pay the village for all engineering, permit and construction costs to upgrade the Dunhaven Woods lift station.

Lastly, the district will pay a sewer usage fee in accordance with village code.

“This is a win-win,” Ottesen said. “They accomplish what they want and we get an upgrade to our infrastructure.”
