In November 2011, the City of Chicago launched an unprecedented increase in water rates. While Elk Grove absorbed as much of Chicago’s rate increase for as long as possible, the Village was compelled in 2012 to pass along some of Chicago’s rate increase to residents as most other municipalities have done already.

In an effort to properly account for all water consumed by customers in Elk Grove Village, the Village installs water meters in all homes, businesses, schools, and government buildings within the Village. Water consumption is billed bi-monthly. Billing for all water consumption indirectly results in conservation as residents and businesses are only charged for what they consume.

Please Note: The inside water meter is the meter of record. Periodic comparisons of readings should be made to ensure accuracy of the outside reader. If a discrepancy is noted, please contact Utility Billing at (847) 357-4060.

The revenue from water and sewer fees is used to pay for the cost of the water purchased from JAWA as well as the maintenance and repair of the Village’s water and sewer system.
