The Village of Westmont recently released its annual water quality report. This report summarizes the quality of the water provided to the Village of Westmont last year (2015). Included are details regarding where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to standards set by regulatory agencies. The report was delivered to every home in the community.
Westmont tap water is obtained from the City of Chicago through the DuPage Water Commission. The Lake Michigan water that is purchased from the DuPage Water Commission is treated before being distributed to residents and businesses. However, chlorine is added to water entering the ground storage tanks from May to September to maintain a sufficient residual for water in storage.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water system, please contact Jim Cates, Public Works Supervisor, at the Westmont Public Works Water Division 630-981-6270.
