Water bills are due on the 21st of each month and represent the consumption for the previous month. For example, a bill with a due date of May 21st, represents water consumed during the month of April. If the twenty-first day of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or state or federal holiday, the amount shall be due on the first following business day.
If your bill is not paid by the date due shown on the bill, a late fee of 10 percent of the outstanding balance will be added to your bill.

One option is to conserve water within your home. This can be as simple as not running the water when washing the dishes or brushing your teeth. Another option would be to water your plants/lawn less often. You can often save water by checking for leaks regularly and dealing with them promptly. One simple leak checking option is to use die strips, tablets or food dies in your toilet tank (do not flush) and checking (after 10-30 minutes) if the color migrates into your bowl on its own.
To determine your average daily use or to check your appliance usage, you can read your meter on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis.Simply record your meter reading at the beginning of a measurement period and again at the end of a period. The difference between these two meter readings will be the water used during that period.Your water meter reads in cubic feet and can easily be converted to gallons by multiplying the reading by 7.48 gallons per cubic foot.
The Village needs to raise water rates periodically to account for regular increases in costs, such as rate increases from the DuPage Water Commission, whom provides the water supply from the City of Chicago. It is important to remember that no taxes are used to operate the water system; all water fund revenue is derived from user charges.
