East Side Water Project Notice

East Side Water Project Notice



Beginning in June 2020, the City will be completing a water project including the replacement and removal of roughly 20 linear feet of 4-inch, 950 linear feet of 6-inch, 500 linear feet of 8-inch and 2,600 linear feet of 10-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC) water main. The project also includes replacement of water service lines, valves, fire hydrants and all necessary site restoration.


The total project is estimated to cost $1,695,547.71 and is being financed with 20-year 1.5% loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP).  The City will also be securing $800,000 in principal loan forgiveness from IEPA.  The final loan amount the City will have to pay back is estimated at $779,137.00.   


The Public Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA).  A portion of the IEPA money to fund these types of projects comes from the US Environmental Protection Agency.  SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities with the resources to build, maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water. 


The project will provide improved water service and water quality to the City’s water distribution system.
