A refresher course for three returning trustees and for three new trustees at the Oswego Village Board meeting will be held Tuesday at 6 p.m. about the village's water source issue. The aquifer used by several area communities is declining.

The first of the six part-study will focus on defining the problem, why it is happening and identifying potential options. The Illinois State Water Survey will present their findings and answer questions.

For the first time, a timeline has been released. The details of different options will occur June 22nd where key considerations will be evaluated.

A third discussion centers on conservation measures July 13th, a pre-qualification to obtaining Lake Michigan water and practical implications for the Fox River option. On August 3rd, an ordinance for conservation will be voted on by the six trustees.

By December, the Oswego Village Board will decide if it is joining the Joliet option of Lake Michigan water.

A joint public meeting for Yorkville, Montgomery, and Oswego will be held at a future date. A Public information meeting date has not been determined.
