About Valley View
A middle class district in a growing area southwest of Chicago, two communities,
Bowlingbrook and Romeoville, feed students into the district. The district is known for
academic achievement and superlative athletics.
Three schools sites needed classrooms to facilitate rapidly growing student populations.
The school district constructed a new high school, converted the old high school into a
junior high and planned to build new structures to house elementary schools students.
Innovative Modular Solutions was hired by the district to provide temporary classroom
space and to solve a waste water problem at two sites where structures were placed distant
from sewer tie-ins. The temporary buildings were located in an area were no sewer
lines existed. To connect temporarily to those lines would have cost thousands of unbudgeted
The Whitley Solution
IMS was able to design a Whitley temporary sewer system in conjunction with the temporary classrooms. The temporary classrooms were built with ADA accessible restrooms, so IMS only needed to set the 1,500 gallon sewer containment system next to the buildings and to make a simply plumbing connection to put the buildings into service. The IMS solution allowed the district to accommodate rapid growth without the costly temporary tie-ins to sewer lines. Modifying the sewer maintenance system to be serviced more frequently allowed the Whitley sewer system to accommodate a larger-thannormal and constantly growing population of students.
