The water agency had previously offered $34 million for the line, and then upped it to $37.6 million.
Claar said the water agency will file a lawsuit as soon as its legal council can prepare it. Depending on American Lake Water Co., he said the proceedings themselves could take up to 18 months.

The Northern Will County Water Agency is attempting to acquire the American Lake Water Co. In Illinois.
Why would a public official state that an owner will use a "legal maneuver" to delay the project. The reality is that owners have rights protected by the Constitution.

The comment made would be similar to a presidential declaration on an aircraft carrier that "the war is won".
