Water Main Replacement Program

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 program primarily focuses 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.

Streets Included in the 2023 WMP

Water mains are being replaced on Hill St, W Maple Ave, Cumberland Trl and Cumberland Ct, with $1.9 million earmark for the program this year.  Work on this program is expected to wrap up in mid-July on Hill St and Maple Ave.  The work on Cumberland Trl and Cumberland Ct is expected to wrap up at the end of August.
