Whose Responsibility Is It?

Water Service Line

Per Village Code, residents are responsible for the water service line from the Village water main to their water meter. In recent years, as the Village has replaced aging water mains, it has begun taking ownership of the service line from the main to the buffalo box (b-box), while residents maintain ownership from the b-box to the water meter. If the water main connected to the service line has not been replaced since March 1, 2014, the entire service line from the main to the water meter remains the resident's full responsibility. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 847-251-9210.
