Wildrose Lift Station Project

The City of St. Charles is pleased to inform you that Wildrose Lift Station is being reconstructed. The project will replace aging station originally constructed in the early 80’s. The lift station is located on Wildrose Springs Drive.


The contract for this work has been awarded to Marc Kresmery Construction of Elgin, IL. Ciorba Engineering, Inc. will be the on-site engineer performing construction inspections and acting as the field liaison to residents and property owners.  Any questions or concerns may be directed to City of St Charles Public Works at (630) 377-4405.


We are working with the contractor to determine the exact dates, but generally anticipate construction to occur as follows:

NICOR Gas Main Relocation – End of July  

Mobilization, Site Setup – July

Site Construction – August – October

Landscaping & Final Restoration – October

Project Completion Date – November

Please visit the Public Improvements Project page on the City’s website at www.stcharlesil.gov/projects for information on the start dates and construction updates for each street. 


This project has been divided into three phases to facilitate the completion of the project in a timely manner and with as little disruption to residents and properties as possible:

Phase I: A new submersible lift station adjacent to the existing station will be constructed. The current lift station will remain in service during construction and will then be abandoned in place.

Phase II: Once the new station is constructed site restoration work will start.


Please note that all work will be performed within the City right-of-way.  If you have any type of existing features within the City right-of-way area (i.e. sprinkler system, landscape features, special decorative rocks, brick driveways, electronic “invisible” dog fence, etc.), precautions should be taken by you, the homeowner, to remove or store these items right away to assure that they are not damaged. The City will not repair or replace private appurtenances left within the City right-of-way.


Mail and Garbage service will not be interrupted during construction.  Please leave your garbage at the end of your driveway on your normally scheduled pick up day by 6 am as pick may occur earlier than normal to avoid the construction work.


The City appreciates your continued cooperation and patience during this large-scale project. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Public Works. (630) 377-4405 or via email at twilson@stcharlesil.gov 

Thank you for your help and understanding throughout this construction project.  We know you will be better served by these improvements and look forward to serving you in the future.
