The Water Main Replacement Program (WMP) was initiated following the completion of the Village's Wastewater Facilities Master Plan in 2015 and the Baxter & Woodman Water and Sewer Rate Study commissioned by the Village. The final report recommended that the Village budget $1 million per year between 2016 and 2020 to replace aging water mains, funded through scheduled annual water rate increases from 2016-2020.
The program is primarily focused on areas with older (50+ year old) water mains, typically cast iron, with a high break frequency. The new water mains are Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), with an expected service life of 75 years or more.

The WMP will continue for 2019, with an estimated $1.7 million earmarked for water main replacements this year. Check back for a listing of streets included 2019 WMP.
