Required Cross-Connection Survey

Cross Connect

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) are responsible for ensuring that cross-connections do not occur through the enforcement of cross-connection control regulations.
A cross-connection is any physical connection that allows a potable or safe water source such as the Village drinking water system and a non-potable or contaminated source, the ability to come into contact with one another. A cross-connection between potable water sources and non-potable sources may cause contamination of plumbing systems potentially risking the health of consumers. Examples of potential cross connection sources include: water from a private source such as a well, water of unknown or questionable safety, steam, gas or chemical systems, or any condition whereby the sources could flow from one system to the other, the direction of flow depending on the difference in pressure between the systems.
To protect the integrity of the Village's drinking water system, in the interest of the public health safety and welfare, the IEPA requires the Village to survey water customers as part of a Cross-Connection Control Program. Please visit and complete the required survey by the December 31st, 2018 deadline. This survey requires your Village water account number and manufacturer's information of any existing cross-connection control devices at your location.
If you have any questions please contact, Elias Vega, Water Production Supervisor at 630-671-5830.
