Westmont, Illinois -- Date Issued: November 18, 2022
On Monday, November 14, DuPage County Public Works and the Village of Westmont hosted an informational meeting regarding questions concerning water infrastructure and distribution in the unincorporated Liberty Park subdivision, which is located outside of Village of Westmont municipal boundaries, north of Ogden Avenue and west of Cass Avenue. More than 150 attended the meeting. The focus of the meeting was in regard to the possibility of Liberty Park residents receiving Lake Michigan water via the Village of Westmont water distribution system.
“This has been a topic of interest for residents of Liberty Park for many years,” said Village Manager Steve May. “The goal of this meeting was to answer questions. There are different points of view regarding this item, but ultimately, the residents of Liberty Park will determine whether or not they are interested in making a change to their current water supply and distribution system.”
The meeting, which included information regarding the details of a new water distribution system and potential costs, was recorded and has been published on the Village of Westmont YouTube Channel, which can be viewed by the general public. Additionally, DuPage County has put together an informational webpage regarding this topic.
