PROPOSED INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT

 

Department:  Bureau of Asset Management  

 

Other Part(ies):  City of Oak Forest, Illinois

 

Request:  Authorization to enter into and execute the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) to construct a 12” water main to supply domestic water to the Oak Forest Hospital Campus from the City of Oak Forest and thereafter secure water for the Oak Forest Hospital Campus from the City of Oak Forest.

 

Goods or Services:  N/A  

 

Agreement Number(s):  N/A  

 

Agreement Period:  From date of execution through 11/30/2025 

 

Fiscal Impact:  In FY2020 and FY2021, capital expense of $1,000,000 for construction of the new line.  Operating expense decrease of $200,000 - $300,000 fully beginning in FY2022. 

 

Accounts:  Capital Budget  

 

Summary: Oak Forest Hospital currently receives its water from the City of Chicago. This was initially approved by the County Board in 1935 and large sections of the original pipe still exist from the initial installation. The current supply line is nearly 10 miles long, and runs under canals, state owned roads, and through forest preserves before arriving on the campus. Analyses indicate that a large volume of water is being lost due to leakage along the 10 miles of pipe.

 

IDOT will soon be beginning a road improvement process along Ashland Avenue from 138th Street to Sibley. The current line runs under this section of Ashland Avenue and needs to be relocated. After a cost analysis, including replacement and repairs and the low occupancy of the hospital campus, it was determined that it would be beneficial to find a new water source. This change is expected to save the County $200,000 - $300,000 annually.
