Construction of the Water System improvements in the Village of Shannon, Illinois were financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes the construction of a new well, well house, radium treatment, water main, and tank painting. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the Village of Shannon. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
