Business Resources

Starting on May 29, Romeoville will enter into Phase 3 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan. This means, as long as they follow Illinois Department of Public Health safety guidelines, non-essential businesses like manufacturing, barbershops, and salons can reopen. Health and fitness clubs can provide outdoor classes and one-on-one personal training and retail stores can open with capacity limits and face coverings. It also means bars and restaurants will be able to offer sit down service in outdoor seating sections.


EPA Recommendations for Businesses Reopening

The Village of Romeoville Water Department understands that this is a stressful time for our community and for the customers that we serve. Please know that we continue to take all steps necessary to maintain safe, reliable water service. 

As many businesses will be reopening in the next phase, it is important to know that building and business closures reduce water usage, potentially leading to stagnant water inside building plumbing. This water can become unsafe to drink or otherwise use for personal or commercial purposes. It is recommended that building owners, building managers, and businesses take proactive steps to protect public health by minimizing water stagnation during closures and taking action such as flushing the building’s plumbing to address building water quality prior to reopening.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has provided documents below with guidance for building owners to address potential water quality issues prior to “re-opening” buildings to normal occupancy and water usage. The IDPH guidance documents provide a comprehensive approach related to recommended flushing procedures contaminant mitigation procedures, and water quality monitoring.

Additional guidance from USEPA can be found here.
