About 600 feet of water main will be replaced in E. Lake Bluff Boulevard between approximately N. Newhall Street and N. Oakland Avenue. The project will go to bid in mid-February and a contract is anticipated to be awarded at the March 20th meeting of the Village Board. Construction is anticipated to begin sometime in June, after the conclusion of the school year.
Lead Service Replacements
The municipal portion of the 18 water services connecting to this main segment will be replaced as a part of this project. Property owners will have the option to replace their private water service under the Village's contract, potentially at a reduced cost.
Affected property owners have been mailed a postcard with preliminary information regarding the project. A public meeting will be scheduled and additional information provided when a contract is awarded.
