Feasibility Study

Background Information
In 2011, civil engineering firm Baxter & Woodman, Inc. produced a report (PDF) detailing the Village of Wauconda’s existing groundwater resources, demand, and future prognosis. Feasibility studies prepared at that time showed that the aquifers in the local area have limited capacity and are susceptible to impurities and contaminants. Increasing demand for water has resulted in recent over-pumping of several aquifers creating low water levels and poor water quality.
