Design plans are currently being prepared to replace a 14-inch diameter water main that broke under the Fox River and has been isolated and unused since September 2017. Replacement is at an estimated cost of $800,000.00. In addition to historic preservation and endangered species reviews and signoffs, permits will be required from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Engineering Design and permitting are planned to be completed by January 1, 2019, with contract award and construction to begin April 15, 2019. We are also coordinating the water main design with officials at Ottawa High School in conjunction with their new flood wall expansion.
