WATER MAIN PUBLIC NOTICE
Construction of Main Street Alley Water Main Improvements located in the alley on the East side of Main Street was financed in part by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the US Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes improvements to the Village’s water distribution system. The project will replace water mains in the alley between Cleveland Street and the railroad. Water Mains will also be replaced on the south side of the railroad from the west side of Main Street to LaSalle Street and also along Main Street from the railroad to approximately 300 feet north. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the Village of Ladd by improving reliability, volume and reducing maintenance costs. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
