Water & Sewer Services

Water and Sewer services are billed on a bi-monthly basis, and may be paid at the Village Hall.  Office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Mondays and 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.  If you pay your bill during regular business hours, you may pay inside the Village Hall or use the convenient 24-hour drop slot located at the Village Hall.  Additional Payment options are listed below.

Setting up new Service
You may call the Village Clerk's office at 847-395-1000 to set up water and sewer service.  You will need the service address, name to be placed on the account, number of vehicles registered to the service address, and any owner information if you are renting.

If you are an attorney or registered agent, please call at least one week prior to the closing date in order for us to obtain a final reading and prepare a final bill for you to have at the closing.

Water and Sewer Rate Information
Water and Sewer Rates are as follows:

The rate for water is a $12.00 minimum charge plus an additional $2.66 per 1,000 gallons.  Funds pay for both the cost of water itself and the maintenance of the mains and other distribution components.

The Village sewer charge is a $26.00 minimum charge plus additional $4.24 per 1,000 gallons.

Homes located east of Deep Lake Road pay a sewer charge of $2.90 per 1,000 gallons of water used that is paid to Lake County Public Works (LCPW).  This charge is included in the sewer charge of $4.24 per 1,000 gallons shown on your bill. Although this charge is billed by the Village, it is in turn paid to LCPW.

Please contact the utility clerk for information regarding multiple unit bill calculations (i.e. apartment buildings).

Past Due Bills
