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. 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.
2019 Water Main Replacement Program
November 5, 2018 - The Village is currently developing plans and specifications for the 2019 Water Main Replacement Program.
