Water System Improvement Project
The water system infrastructure improvements that Oak Lawn and its engineering firm have been designing are estimated to cost about $216 million and are scheduled to be completed in 2021. The new system will have dual, redundant feeds; more modern and efficient pump stations; and significantly larger capacity. Click here for more information.

Tree Replacement Program
In response to the thousands of trees lost to the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle, the Village hired Beary Landscaping, Inc. from Lockport, Ill. to implement a comprehensive tree planting program to provide more than 10,000 trees over the course of three years.

[Update May 15, 2017]: Last week Beary installed approximately 107 new trees, bringing the season total to 1,089 trees. Last week's plantings also included the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) grant project planting, and crews pruned and watered trees under warranty. The planting program had installed 8,989 trees prior to this season, bringing the overall total to 10,078 trees. New plantings are anticipated to continue through Friday, May 26, depending on weather. At the conclusion of new plantings for this season, Beary will be handling replacement plantings and straightening trees. Other maintenance items such as watering and pruning will be ongoing.
