Residential Water Heater Registration Information

This registration form should be used only for in-kind water heater replacement.  No permit will be required for the replacement of the water heater.  In all cases, the requirements listed here will apply.  This process is designed to maximize customer convenience. However, the customer always has the right to seek a permit and a follow-up inspection. The Village of Lake Villa reserves the right to inspect any construction performed whether permitted or registered.
