Capital Improvement Program

The Lake County Public Works Capital Improvement Program identifies funding to plan, design and construct projects that are necessary to preserve, modernize and expand the water distribution systems and wastewater systems under the jurisdiction of Lake County government.

Current Projects

In this phase, potential projects are identified for future inclusion into the 5-year capital program based on the strategic goals and priorities of the County Board and Public Works department. Staff also uses information from the Public Works Administration, Engineering, Maintenance and Operations departments as well as information from asset tracking, life-cycle analysis, functional studies, assessments on condition of water and sewer infrastructure, and initial high-level cost estimates and schedules to help build the capital improvement program.
