Water Main Replacement Program


The Water Main Replacement Program (WMP) was initiated in 2016 based on the recommendations of the Baxter & Woodman water rate study commissioned by the Village. The final report recommended that the Village budget $900,000 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.

Streets Included in the 2018 WMP

The 2018 program included the replacement of existing water mains and appurtenances at two locations (blue lines on map at right):
