VILLA PARK – On a sunny Monday morning, Villa Park’s water treatment facility was quiet and mostly empty as Bill Johnson shined his flashlight into the tanks.
The Wet Weather Flow Treatment Facility still was dry when Johnson, the center’s lead operator, pointed out key components of the tanks. But just a few weeks ago, when much of the village was underwater, public works employees were wading through deep trouble of their own.
During the April 18 storms that brought more than 9 inches of rain to Villa Park, infrastructure designed to prevent flooding couldn’t keep up. Like much of town, a portion of the treatment facility also reached its limits.
