The city of Watseka in Iroquois County has been awarded $40,000 by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) as part of the state’s ongoing effort to eliminate lead from public water systems.

This grant, coming from the Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) Grant Program, is instrumental for Watseka in meeting the requirements of the Lead Service Line Replacement and Notification Act (LSLRN Act).

Illinois EPA’s funding will enable Watseka to undertake a comprehensive survey of its water service lines, focusing on the identification and eventual removal of lead service lines.

The grant underscores the state’s commitment to public health and clean water, providing essential resources for smaller communities like Watseka to ensure the safety and quality of their drinking water systems.
