Lake Michigan Water Project

For well over a decade now the Village of Wauconda has been working on the largest project in the Village’s long history, which is the delivery of Lake Michigan water - a clean and sustainable source of drinking water for the residents and businesses of Wauconda.

The Village of Wauconda is pleased to report that as of October 3, 2019 the Village of Wauconda is officially receiving Lake Michigan water from CLCJAWA!  It will take approximately 2-3 days for the entire system to circulate with Lake Michigan water.
