The project will dedicate about $2 million to the replacement of aging pipes and $500,000 to repairs at the Water Treatment Plant, 18 N. Main St.
The village’s water lines were put in about 80 years ago, Huggins-Davis said.
“We have a lot of water main breaks in the heat of summer and the coldest part of the winter,” she said.
“The pressure is fine but more water will be available for flow,” she said, which will help in case of a fire.
Electrical upgrades will be made at the water treatment plant, she said, as well as a new paint job and replacement of some valves. The village will also get 27 new fire hydrants.
Village administrators will begin applying for funding for the project this summer, Huggins-Davis said.
“We’re hoping to start construction maybe next summer,” she said.
