Water System Improvements Project

PUBLIC NOTICE

WATER SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT

The City of Prophetstown has begun construction of the New Well No. 5 and Water Treatment Plant
Project located at 100 Sunset Lane. The project includes construction of a new water treatment plant with
iron & manganese filter, a new Well No. 5, connection of existing Well No. 4 with dedicated water main to
the new plant, demolition of existing filter and piping at the existing plant, and demolition of the Well No. 3
building and abandonment of Well No. 3, including all appurtenances and site work. The project is being
financed by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the
Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of
projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Once complete, this project will allow the City to
continue to provide quality drinking water for area residents. SRF programs operate in each state to
provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that
protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
