A 6119 regional water district



This project was initiated through requests made by the Villages of Lafayette and Harrod to the Allen Water District to determine how to best serve these communities with public water.  The project consists of constructing a waterline with fire hydrants from Westminster to the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette serving all residents of both Harrod and Lafayette.

On June 26, 2019, an Informational Meeting was held with property owners who live within the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette to provide some general project information.

On July 11, 2019, the Village Councils of Harrod and Lafayette passed legislation necessary to move forward with the East Regional Waterline Improvement Project.  

In early August, field survey work as well as soil borings began and continued through September.  This preliminary engineering work is necessary for design and will be completed by Prime AE Group, Inc. and DLZ, Inc.   

On August 27, 2019, the District conducted another Informational Meeting for property owners along the waterline route who live outside the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette. 

As of October 2019, the tentative schedule for the East Regional Waterline Improvement Project has been revised. The updated timeline provides for the application of funding essential to maintaining a reasonable cost to property owners as well as allows the project to be bid during a more favorable time of year. 

  • An Informational Meeting was held on June 26, 2018 to present information relating to the proposed waterline to the affected property owners.

  • Based on the response from property owners, the waterline project has been tabled. A letter was sent out to property owners on October 23rd stating the same. Please contact the District with any questions or concerns.

  •  On 1/10/2018, the Board made a motion to continue with the Diller Road East Waterline Improvement Project by Waiver of Notice of Hearing and Consent to Assesment for Public Improvement.  The District Chair has signed and entered into an agreement with Kohli & Kaliher Associates, Inc. for preparation of plans. 


  • On 4/11/2018, the Board of Trustees approved a Resolution of Necessity to construct a waterline along East Diller Road stating the location of project, approve detailed plans, specifications, estimate of costs, method of repayment and method of levying special assessments and authorize the Clerk of the Board to advertise for bids.

  • On June 8th, this project was put out for bid and unfortunately, the bids received were more than 10% of our engineer's estimate.  For this reason, by law, the District is required to reject the bids.  A letter has been sent to the affected property owners to give an update on the project.  The District would like to bid this project again in the fall when the bidding will most likely be more competitive.


  • Bid opening held on October 26, 2018 at 10 a.m. and bids received were much more favorable.  Contract awarded to Beaverdam Contracting.


  • On 12/3/2018, construction began on the waterline project.  Construction completed in late December.
