Water Billing

Automated Water Meters
Your home is equipped with an automated water meter. Automatic water meter readings call in your water meter read once a month.
  • Your automated meter will allow your meter to be read every month without someone coming to your home.
  • Your automated meters can detect leaks that may inflate your water bill.
  • Your automated meter will provide consistent and accurate meter reads to ensure that you are billed properly.
Closing Your Water Account
If you are moving and wish to close your water account, you must arrange a final on-site meter read with the Village. Before you move out, call the Water Billing Department at 815-886-7212 to schedule an appointment to have a meter reading taken. Also, be prepared to give a forwarding address. Please call at least two days in advance. The water account will remain in your name until the final meter read is conducted.

Irrigation Meters

Under Village Ordinance a household may purchase an irrigation meter for outside use. An irrigation meter is not charged with a sewage bill. However, it should be noted that purchasing an irrigation meter costs $300. In addition it is the responsibility of the homeowner to pay for installation through a state licensed plumber. For more information, please call 815-886-7212.

Leak Detection & Water Conservation Tips
Leaky fixtures may dramatically increase your water bill. For example, a small drip from a leaky faucet can consume 15 to 22 gallons of water a day. Learn more about detecting leaks and conserving water.
