The village of Palatine will reimburse residents for two-thirds of the cost of replacing their own lead pipes.
The village council unanimously approved Tuesday night the creation of new water service line replacement cost-sharing program, to be funded by $300,000 in grant money from the Northwest Water Commission. The village received a total $582,000 from the commission and allocated $282,000 to water system improvements and technology upgrades.
There about 310 residential lead water lines in Palatine, out of a total 19,000 or so.
