The Water Production Division routinely collects water samples for chlorine, pH, temperature, and bacteriological analysis. These parameters are required to be collected daily or monthly and submitted with monthly operating reports to IEPA. In addition annual programs such as Lead and Copper, Trihalomethanes and Inorganic chemicals are collected and analyzed.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) are responsible for enforcing cross-connection regulations.
The use of the public water supply for automatic sprinkling devices is restricted from May through September.

The Village of Bloomingdale (VOB) has a long history of delivering drinking water that meets or exceeds all federal and state standards for water quality as regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Safe Drinking Water Act including compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) Since the inception of the LCR in 1991 water utilities have been required to monitor for lead and copper in the water distribution system. The LCR requires water suppliers to deliver water that is minimally corrosive thereby reducing the likelihood that lead and copper will be introduced into the drinking water from the corrosion of customer lead and copper plumbing materials. The source of drinking water for the VOB is Lake Michigan, which contains no detectable lead. Lake Michigan water is treated by the City of Chicago Department of Water Management which has had a corrosion control program in place since 1993. The VOB has been in compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule since its inception.
