Water System Survey

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) re­quires that all water systems in the State of Illinois have an effective Cross Connection Control Program. A vital step in this program is a survey of the water system to determine where cross connections exist.

Cross connections (i.e. lawn irrigation systems, fire sprin­kler systems, boilers, etc.) within the public water supply can potentially allow contaminants or pollutants to enter the public water system through what is called “backflow”. Backflow occurs when a drop in water pressure causes your water to flow in the opposite direction. This can allow con­taminated or polluted water to flow back into your drinking water. 

Please complete the survey at: https://backflow.com/lakevilla. This survey is for residents and businesses within the Village of Lake Villa.

If you have any questions, or prefer a paper copy of the survey, please contact the Village Hall at (847)356-6100.  Printable surveys are also available for download at https://backflow.com/lakevilla
