Share post:

Lake County in Illinois has secured $140,000 in funding from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) as part of its efforts to tackle lead contamination in drinking water.

This funding is allocated through the Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) Grant Program and aims to assist Lake County communities in mapping out lead service lines as mandated by the Lead Service Line Replacement and Notification Act (LSLRN Act).

The Illinois EPA’s grant program supports communities in creating detailed inventories of water service lines, identifying lead components for future replacement. Waukegan, a major recipient in Lake County, received $50,000, matching the grant given to Round Lake Beach. Smaller communities like Winthrop Harbor also benefited, receiving $40,000.
