    • Project Name: Village of Dieterich Sanitary Sewer Relining
      • Project Sponsor: Village of Dieterich
      • Address: 103 W. Section Street, PO Box 243, Dieterich, IL 62424

    • Project Name: Teutopolis Cast Iron Water Main Replacement
      • Project Sponsor: Village of Teutopolis
      • Address: 106 E. Main Street, Teutopolis, IL 62467
      • Requested Amount: $1,929,264

    • Project Name: Saline Valley Conservancy District Water Treatment Plant Improvements
      • Project Sponsor: Saline Valley Conservancy District
      • Address: 900 Dewey Street Eldorado, IL 62930
      • Requested Amount: $1,678,500
      • Explanation: The funding would purchase and install new hardware control panels to replace the old control boxes, converting old "DOS" based programming to new programming, and replacing hardware and software at the approximate 12 remote sites where the district monitors water for the service area. The project also includes purchasing and installing new filter control counsels and replacing old filter valves and electric actuators. The SVCD was established to deliver reliable, safe drinking water to a rural customer base across multiple counties serving a majority of low to moderate income areas. The plant is still in operation with 1980's control hardware and software, including programming that is in the DOS operating system. It is no longer possible to get parts for the hardware at the plant nor is it possible to upgrade the DOS software that controls and monitors plant operations and all remote locations throughout the district. These improvements will enable the plant to remain operational and provide safe drinking water for the community because the existing controls have reached the end of their useful life and could fail any day.

        • Project Name: Truck and Salt Shed Replacement – Perry County
          • Project Sponsor:  Perry County Highway Department
          • Address: 3698 IL Route 13/127, Pinckneyville, IL 62274
          • Requested Amount: $1,115,720.40
          • Explanation: The funding would be used to replace a truck storage building and a salt storage building. The existing buildings will be removed because they have structural issues that pose a health and safety threat for our employees. The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars and is anticipated to have the following benefits. The proposed building removes the current possibility of an employee being hurt as a result of a building collapse. An injury of this type could be permanent, is a life changing event for the employee, and could result in massive costs by the County. This project will also increase the County’s efficiency so that they can invest extra funds into their road network.
