Public Water Main Construction Update

This notice has been sent to everyone in the Village as a general update. The Contractor has completed installation and testing of all water mains. In 2021, approximately 150 residential properties have connected. Work at the well sites will be starting in 2022. This includes upgrading the Lannon Estates well to municipal grade, rehabilitating the well at Whispering Ridge, and adding a third booster pump to Whispering Ridge. These projects make the entire system more reliable and add fire protection capacity. This winter, the Village will be exploring how to use USDA-RD contingency grant funds made possible due to the projects tracking under budget.

RESTORATION WORK

Now that snow has arrived, the Contractor is likely unable to complete all restoration work. However, they are required to come back in Spring 2022 to complete whatever cannot be finished. The Village has not signed off on or paid for final restoration work and will do a comprehensive review in the spring of the entire project area. Restoration work is also part of the 1-year project warranty period. For example, any seeded areas that do not grow will be re-seeded in the spring. In the meantime, if you have an important or unique restoration need, please contact the field engineer: Isak Fruchtman, Isak.Fruchtman@strand.com, 414-982-2300 x1535.

OPTION TO KEEP YOUR WELL FOR OUTDOOR USE

The Village Board approved an ordinance in November 2021 to allow residents who have connected to municipal water to keep their well for outdoor use. Well Operation Permit forms are available at Village Hall and online at www.villageoflannon.com/water. Property owners have 90 days after connecting to municipal water to apply for a permit or to abandon their well. The cost of well abandonment that happens within that time frame is 100% covered by the Quarry Grant Fund (there is no longer a 50% match requirement).
