The Engineering Department maintains three (3) atlases: TARP and Flood Control, Sewer, and Combined Sewer Area. The MWRD atlases have been deemed exempt from disclosure in accordance with Section 7(1)(k) of the Freedom of Information Act. However, if you’d like to make a request for a specific, narrowed location within the atlas, we will consider release of those records after weighing potential security risks. Requests are made through the Office of Public Affairs, in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). For FOIA procedures and fee schedules, click here.

1. TARP and Flood Control Atlas (31 oversized pages)

The Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP), also referred to as the Deep Tunnel, shows the underground tunnels used to intercept stormwater overflow and convey it to large storage reservoirs. TARP is comprised of four major subsystems: Mainstream, Calumet, Des Plaines and O’Hare (Upper Des Plaines).

Maps in this atlas show the following:

  1. Boundary of MWRD service area

  2. Location and size of MWRD TARP Tunnels

  3. Location of drop shafts, connecting structures and interceptor connections

  4. Location of flood control projects

  5. Location of MWRD channels

  6. Flood control projects location plans

2. Sewer Atlas (31 oversized pages)

In order to collect wastewater from local sewer systems and convey it to the treatment plants, the MWRD has constructed 547 miles of intercepting sewers, including force mains. 

Maps in this atlas show the following:

  1. Boundary of MWRDGC service area

  2. Location and size of MWRDGC plants, and pumping stations

  3. Location, size and depth of MWRDGC sewers

  4. Location of MWRDGC channels

  5. Local sanitary districts

  6. Facility planning areas (service basins)

3. Combined Sewer Area Atlas (31 oversized pages)

The combined sewer system is designed to collect a mixture of rainfall runoff, domestic and industrial wastewater in the same pipe for conveyance to wastewater treatment plants.

Maps in this atlas show the following:

  1. Boundary of MWRDGC service area

  2. Location of MWRDGC combined sewers

 The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has implemented a nationwide initiative focused on enhancing public awareness of EPA financial assistance.  Another goal of this initiative is to increase public awareness regarding improvements that municipalities make as a result of the SRF loan programs.  Beginning October 1, 2015, all loan recipients in Illinois are required to make project public notifications.

The SRF Loan Fund provides low-interest loans to finance qualifying projects. Upon project completion, MWRD bonds are issued at the same low-interest rate. The current interest rate for new loans issued 7/1/20 through 6/30/21 to the MWRD is 1.35 percent. The MWRD has authorized approximately $2.2 billion of SRF loans since the program's inception. Several projects are currently financed through SRF loans.

The MWRD expects to receive $70.0 million in 2020 and approximately $100.0 million annually from SRF loans for the next several years. The SRF Loan Fund replaced the Federal Construction Grants program from which the MWRD had historically received 55 to 75 percent direct funding for qualifying capital improvements.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago has received SRF loan funding from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Water Pollution Control Program for the following projects in the year indicated. Click on the project title for more information on the project.
