"The selected construction project consists of the replacement of approximately 1,700 feet of failing water mains, and the installation of water supply meters on all active service connections. The project will decrease the frequency of water main breaks and reduce the exceptionally high water consumption rate. Additionally, if the Recipient chooses to install arsenic treatment in the future, its related annual operations and maintenance costs will be substantially lower.
Over the past 14 years, the community of Robbins has averaged over 41 million gallons of water use per year. Given that the peak-year population is 350 residents, this equates to approximately 324 gallons of water per capita-day, which is the highest in the County.
