Highland Lake Water System Improvement Project

Project Location:  Subdivision west of Highland Lake in unincorporated Avon Township.   

Project Description:  Lake County Public Works (LCPW) recently completed a study to identify ways to modernize the Highland Lake water system that would provide additional well capacity and water storage. The study identified the installation of two wells and one storage tank are recommended in the near term to add capacity and make the system more resilient in emergency situations. The study also identified an interconnection that would bring Lake Michigan water to homes in the water system that would ensure long-term reliable and resilient service.

The design for these improvements will take place in 2022-2023, with construction anticipated in 2024-2025 pending project readiness.

LCPW presented at the Highland Lake Property Owner's Association in July 2022. View the presentation slides from the meeting.
