The City of Dixon has begun construction of the North Galena Avenue Watermain Lining Project located on North Galena Avenue between 4th Avenue and Bradshaw Street. The project includes cleaning and cured-in-place lining of approximately 3,090 lineal feet of 8” watermain and construction of approximately 333 lineal feet of 6” and 8” diameter watermain complete with all necessary appurtenances and surface restoration. 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 and will rehabilitate aging and deteriorating watermains. 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.
