Since 2019, the Village Board has been working on acquiring a Debt Forgiveness Loan through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) for a new water tower. The Board has been notified that we have been approved for the loan. At this time we have been issued a Construction Permit and plans are to go to bid later this year, with construction beginning early 2022.
The new 125,000 gallon elevated tank will be located at the North Ash Street village property, next to the well. The current 50,000 tank and tower will be dismantled.
If all goes to plan, by next year at this time we’ll have a colorful addition to the Cullom skyline!
