Firm finds possible site for new Flossmoor water pumping station 

As efforts to find a water supply route for Flossmoor continue, the village’s consulting firm on water issues has identified the northeast corner of Vollmer Road and Dixie Highway as a potential site for a pumping station.

At the April 6 village board meeting, Trustee Perry Hoag called the Dixie-Vollmer location a "game changer.” 

The consulting firm, Strand Associates, is studying possible routes where Flossmoor may be able to receive Lake Michigan water from Chicago Heights. The Dixie-Vollmer intersection is located at the border of Flossmoor and Chicago Heights.    . . .
