Water Conservation

Conservation Measures
Our Public Works and Water Utility Billing teams have been working hard to increase accuracy further and reduce water waste.
Water waste or water loss is often due to aging infrastructure or pipes, system leaks, or household plumbing issues. We have aggressively worked towards smart meter installation and are currently 40% complete with total replacement within the Village. Beginning in 2022, the Village moved to a monthly water billing cycle. Smart meters and monthly water billing will allow the Village to better track consumption and give homeowners greater insight into their water use. In addition, the water billing process is often how residents become aware of household water leaks or aging pipe issues.
