Replacement of water main and street resurfacing within the Village of Park Forest is partially financed by the Drinking Water State Revolving 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 replacement of water main and resurfacing of approximately 2.7 miles of streets as follows: Antietam, Arrowhead, Apache, Washington (Wilshire to Westgate), Washington Court, Windsor, Lester (Sauk to Indianwood), Apple, Nassau, Monee (Blackhawk to Orchard), and Monee Court. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents by reducing water main breaks and improving flow and pressure. 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

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has implemented a nationwide initiative focused on enhancing public awareness of EPA financial assistance. Another goal of this initiative is to increase public awareness regarding improvements that municipalities make as a result of the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan programs. The Village of Park Forest was recently approved for a $1,509,330 low interest loan (0.83%) for the following project. $400,000 of the loan amount will be forgiven by the State of Illinois pursuant to principal forgiveness provisions contained in the Loan Rules.
Construction/replacement of water mains at various locations, Village wide, in Park Forest, Illinois, will be financed by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF).
