Attention Lewistown Water Customers
Construction of the Lewistown Well Field and Pump Station Improvements on the Lewistown Well Field, located at 1200 N. US Hwy 24 has begun. This project is partially 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. This project includes raising the well head casings and installing new pumps in seven water supply wells; construction of a new water treatment plant with a 15,000 gallon capacity ground storage tank, two high service pumps, chemical feed equipment, monitoring and control system; site piping; electrical work; installation of a stand by generator; necessary appurtenances; and demolition of the existing pump building, chemical feed building and wet well. Once complete, this project will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in Lewistown by continuing to provide safe drinking water. SRF programs operate in each state to provided communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
