What can customers do if they are experiencing financial difficulty and are unable to pay their bill?

Most importantly and to avoid additional cost in late fees and the potential of service disconnection, do not ignore your bill. The Village will make payment arrangements for past due balances. If you have any questions regarding payment arrangements, please contact our Water Billing Department at 630.260.6010.

Water Conservation

Here are a few tips to conserve water usage:

  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth. You conserve up to 9 gallons of water per brushing.
  • Don't ignore potential leaks of faulty toilet valves. Check for leaks and fix them immediately. A small leak can waste a lot of water and cost you money.
  • 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.
