Watering Restrictions Begin Thursday, June 17

Due to a regional drought throughout the upper Midwest, the Village is taking steps to conserve water. Effective Thursday, June 17, residents and businesses are asked to reduce demand by watering lawns and gardens every other day. The last digit of an address determines the watering day. If an address ends in an even number, the resident can water on even calendar days; if the address ends in an odd number, the resident can water on odd calendar days.

The Village has issued a water supply emergency declaration, and intends to enforce these watering restrictions, and encourages residents to be conscientious and communicate with their neighbors about water conservation during this period of drought and high demand. Property owners are responsible for setting automatic timers accordingly and/or notifying lawn care services. Other neighboring communities have imposed similar restrictions.

Please check for any updates, or call the Municipal Services Department at 708-246-1800 x 200.


The EPA has tips for watering wisely:


NOTE: The use of water collected from rain barrels is not subject to the Village’s water restrictions and conservation policies
