Water Rate Increase - DuPage Water Commission
On January 1, 2013 the Village implemented a rate increase to all customers for water use in an amount of .59¢ per thousand gallons.
The actual increase to your Village water bill was reflected on your March 1, 2013 bill for the usage period of mid-January to mid-February.
What factors contributed to the rate increase?
It is a direct increase of the actual cost of water purchased by the Village from the DuPage Water Commission that will be charged. The overall scheduled increases to the Village by the DuPage Water Commission are as follows:
January 1, 2013 – .59¢ per thousand gallons
January 1, 2014 – .65¢ per thousand gallons
January 1, 2015 – .71¢ per thousand gallons
On May 1, 2013, a scheduled rate adjustment shall be implemted which includes an increase of three percent (3%) to the local water delivery charge and the sewer volume service charge to residential, commercial, industrial and institutional customers. This resulted in an increased cost for residential customers per thousand gallons of .07¢ for the local water delivery charge, and .12¢ for the sewer volume service charge. On average, a residential household bill increased $1.43 per month.
The actual increase will be reflected on your July 1, 2013 bill for the usage period of mid-May to mid-June.

Here are a few tips to conserve water usage:
Visit the Glendale Heights Goes Green pages of the Village website at www.glendaleheights.org/Goes_Green for more conservation tips.
- Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. You conserve up to 9 gallons of water per brushing.
- Toilets use 5-7 gallons with each flush. Install a displacement device to conserve water. This is as simple as placing a plastic bottle filled with water in the tank. This will conserve about 1-2 gallons per flush.
- Check for leaks and fix them immediately. A small leak can waste a lot of water and cost you money.
- Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes.
- Take a short shower instead of a bath. This saves about 15 gallons.
- Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator instead of running the tap until water is cold. This simple step saves about two gallons per glass.
