AMENDMENT TO SENATE BILL 2663

2    AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend Senate Bill 2663 by replacing
3everything after the enacting clause with the following:
 
4    "Section 5. The Public Water District Act is amended by
5adding Section 28.2 as follows:
 
6    (70 ILCS 3705/28.2 new)
7    Sec. 28.2. Sangamon Valley Public Water District
8annexation.
9    (a) The General Assembly finds:
10        (1) Due to a natural gas leak in December 2016,
11    multiple water wells connected to the Mahomet Aquifer, one
12    of the largest sources of water in the State of Illinois,
13    were contaminated with methane, so much so, that numerous
14    homeowners are without potable water.
15        (2) The issue of methane contamination of the State of
16    Illinois' water supply has become a statewide issue and

1    resulted in the Illinois Attorney General having
2    litigation pending over the contamination. On December 21,
3    2018, the Mahomet Aquifer Task Force issued their report
4    specifically addressing this incident and future incidents
5    and stressed the need to provide State government,
6    legislative, and monetary relief so immediate remediation
7    may begin.
8        (3) The area residents have been without safe water
9    service for 4 years.
10        (4) The cost of expanding infrastructure to the area
11    is estimated around $10,000,000. The Sangamon Valley
12    Public Water District is not a taxing body, but rather
13    operates on fees for provided water service and to
14    initiate construction would require an initial sum of
15    $3,800,000.
16        (5) In June 2020, in recognition of this Illinois
17    water-source crisis, the General Assembly passed, and the
18    Governor signed a Capital Bill appropriating $3,800,000
19    required for initiation of the plan to bring water to this
20    area of the State.
21        (6) An addition to funding, the affected area needs to
22    be annexed into a water district territory for such
23    district to be able to lawfully expend funds to benefit
24    the territory and the current statutory annexation
25    procedure is insufficient to address the crisis and does
26    not provide for nor contemplate an expedited procedure in

3effective date of this amendatory Act of the 102nd General
4Assembly, the following property is annexed into the territory
