Water Service & Billing
**Village employees cannot perform in-house assessments of water meters due to the risk posed by COVID-19. Touch pads (located outside) can be re-read upon request, but inside inspections cannot take place at this time.**
The Village of Western Springs derives its water from its own wells. Each year, the Water Department serves more than 4,400 customers by pumping water from local wells to the reverse osmosis (RO) treatment plant at 614 Hillgrove. The water is softened and purified before it is pumped into the distribution system for consumer use.
For questions regarding your water service, please contact the Public Works Department at 708-246-1800 ext. 200.
Village homeowners are billed every other month for water service. Meter readings are taken from a device outside the home. If you are new to the area, please contact the Finance Department at 708-246-1800 ext. 126 to set up a water account. If you are moving, please also contact the Finance Department for a final meter reading to be taken on the day of the sale. A drop box is available at Village Hall for water bill payment.
