Year 2 - 2023 Lead Water Service Line Replacement Project

In this project, the City of Elgin will utilize Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to replace the entire water service from the city’s water distribution main to the meter inside the affected property. 

The City identified approximately 850 lead water service lines targeted for replacement in this project at no cost to the property owner. The affected property owners have been notified and the project is slated to begin in early 2023 with an expected completion date of May 2024.

Virtual Public Information Meetings

To better inform the affected property owners, the City held one virtual and one in-person public information meeting to discuss the replacement of the lead service lines. The meetings were not mandatory but were recommended for anyone who had questions about the project.

If you received a letter but were unable to attend, we strongly encourage you to watch a recording of the virtual meeting or view the presentation slides from the in-person meeting to learn details of the project and the critical items each property owner will be required to participate in with respect to the replacement of their partial lead water service line.
