City of Galesburg Meets EPA Water Quality Standards in Fall 2016

January 13, 2017 09:30 AM
The City of Galesburg announced today that the results of the fall, 2016 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency bi-annual water quality tests met EPA Water Quality Standards. These test results show Galesburg's continued compliance with EPA "Lead and Copper Rule" standards. The City of Galesburg also met the EPA Water Quality Standards in the Spring of 2016 when the same US EPA required tests were conducted. 
The City is currently working with the Illinois EPA on administering a $4 million forgivable loan in order to replace 1,500 to 2,000 private water service lead lines within the City. Work is expected to begin in May of 2017 on replacing the first group of 500 service lines. It is anticipated that the majority of the 1,500 to 2,000 lines will be replaced by the middle of 2018.
