The Department of Water Managementis responsible for delivering nearly 1 billion gallons of fresh, potable water to the residents of Chicago every day. They are also responsible for removing wastewater and stormwater from the streets through the sewer system. A major component to maintaining a healthy and functioning water system in the City of Chicago is by ensuring the integrity of the infrastructure can withstand the daily high usage that it’s presented. In 2011, the Department of Water Management announced that they would be replacing water and sewer mains across the city that date back 100 years or more to avoid main breaks and other potential problems.
