The process of reading a resident's water meter is completely automated. Water Division personnel read the meters electronically through radio waves. The Village currently serves approximately 10,000 residents.
To establish water service the owner of the property must provide proof of ownership in the form of a settlement statement or deed. The owner must also fill out our water application and provide a form of picture identification. Water can be turned on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 7:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
