IEPA Public Notification



Beginning in February 2023, the Village will be completing a water meter project including the purchase and installation of roughly 660 new, radio-read water meters to their replace aging and outdated meters.

The total project is estimated to cost $242,103.22 and is being financed with 20-year 0.93% loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency's Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP). The Village will also be securing $121,051.61 in principal loan forgiveness from IEPA. The final loan amount the Village will have to pay back is estimated at $121,051.61.

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 Village's water distribution system.
