Uses and Restrictions
Per the recommendation of the “Combined Veterans’ Capital Needs Task Force Report, March 2018”, the applicant must develop a water source capable of supplying the Illinois Veterans Home at Quincy potable water. The source of water must exhibit consistent water temperature, low organic contaminants, consistent pH and comply with State regulations. Further, this water source must be supplied to the City of Quincy’s Community Water Supply Treatment Facility (“Treatment Plant”), Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Identification Number IL0010650. This source of water will then be treated to comply with State Drinking Water Quality Standards and subsequently distributed to the Illinois Veterans’ Home at Quincy.

Specifically, the source of water must originate from a well producing from a groundwater source or a groundwater source that is under the influence of surface water. The well must be properly engineered and constructed. The applicant must be capable of obtaining a construction and operating permit for the well from the Illinois EPA. The water produced from the well must be delivered via a properly engineered and constructed transmission main. The applicant must be capable of obtaining a construction and operating permit for the transmission main from the Illinois EPA. The well and transmission main must provide at least twelve million gallons of water per day to the Treatment Plant.

Eligibility Requirements
Eligible proposals will come from public water suppliers within the state of Illinois. The applicant must be in good standing with the Secretary of the State. An entity may not apply for a grant until the entity has registered and pre-qualified through the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) Grantee Portal, www.grants.illinois.gov/portal. Registration and pre-qualification are required annually. During pre-qualification, verifications are performed including a check of federal SAM.gov Exclusion List and status on the Illinois Stop Payment List. The Grantee Portal alerts the entity alerts of “qualified” status or informs how to remediate a negative verification (e.g., inactive DUNS, not in good standing with the Secretary of State). Inclusion on the SAM.gov Exclusion List cannot be remediated.
