Much of the Village’s infrastructure, including underground pipes, are between 50-100 years old. To help address this challenge, the Village will require significant infrastructure improvements over the next 10 years. The Village’s Capital Improvement Plan, adopted as part of Lombard’s Annual Budget, includes more than $31 million for sewer improvements and $14.7 million for water system improvements, over the next 10 years. To help fund these necessary infrastructure improvements, water customers receive a $5 monthly fixed capital fee on their bills. This capital fee will be used to help make long term improvements to the Village’s systems.
On a shorter-term scale, the Village continues to seek out opportunities to expand or establish water detention locations throughout the Village. While we cannot control the amount of water that impacts the Village, we will continue to plan ahead and to do our part in helping to improve the Village of Lombard for its residents and business owners.
