Construction is anticipated to be completed in early 2019.  

Fox Lake Hills System
Construction is starting for the fourth phase of the Lake Michigan Water Project.  Information about the construction schedule and map is available on the CLCJAWA website in the section titled “Watermain Installation Project (NGBP#4) – (N. Cedar Lake Rd, Monaville Rd, Avon Dr, W. Lincoln Dr.)”. This phase of work includes construction of underground pipelines which will cause disruption to the roads leading to the delivery structures, and equipment and materials will be stored in the right of way of some roads. These pipelines will connect the water delivery structures previously constructed in Fox Lake Hills and Lake Villa.
