FRANKFORT, Ill. — The Village of Frankfort has been approved for a loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency that will allow for the removal and replacement of 200 lead service lines.
The IEPA loan, approved by a 6-0 vote by the Village Board of Trustees as part of the Consent Agenda, is in the amount of $1.84 million.
"The project is financed from the Water Revolving Fund with 100% principal forgiveness," Trustee Margaret Farina said during the discussion. "The project will include removal and replacement of approximately 200 lead service lines throughout the Village, replacing the service line from the water main to the residential water meter. Construction will commence during late summer of 2021 and [be] completed by the end of 2022. Participation in this program is completely voluntary but is encouraged."
