The village of Barrington has a plan in place to quickly apply for any funding that becomes available to replace lead pipes, also called service lines, in town.
The lead service line replacement project plan outlines the location of lead pipes, the environmental impacts of replacement and possible loan repayment mechanisms. The plan was done by the consulting company Engineering Enterprises Inc. The village held a public hearing June 28 about it and received no comment from members of the public.
"All the village is doing at this time is being proactive to make itself eligible, hopefully, for grants in the future, or for very low-interest loans in the future, that would reduce the burdens on the residents, hopefully significantly," Public Works Director Jeremie Lukowicz said Tuesday.
