To improve water system capacity and reliability by replacing the existing water main. To improve the condition of the roadway by means of various pavement rehabilitation methods.


This project consists of the replacement of existing 4" and 6" water mains on North Iowa Avenue from Stone to Vermont, on North Michigan Avenue from Stone to Vermont, and on West Vermont Street from Wisconsin to Harvard. The project will also include pavement improvements on Iowa and on a portion of Michigan Avenue.


The existing water mains have a high incidence of water main breaks, and the existing 4" mains also have insufficient capacity. The Illinois EPA Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP) is expected to provide loan funding for the water main improvements. This project is to be partially funded by voter approved bond proceeds.
