The Village's water rate per 1,000 gallons will adjust on Tuesday, May 1st to match an equivalent increase in the cost of purchasing water from the Central Lake County Joint Action Water Agency (CLCJAWA), the Village's water supplier. The rate will rise approximately $0.13 per 1,000 gallons from $3.74 to $3.87. For the average home, which uses about 6,000 gallons of water per month, this will translate to an increase of $1.56 per bill. No other portion of your bill will also change at this time.
CLCJAWA purifies Lake Michigan water at its Lake Bluff treatment plant and then pumps to each of its member communities including Gurnee, Grayslake, Lake Bluff, Libertyville, Mundelein and Round Lake Beach. The Agency has won numerous awards for the high quality of its water.
Despite this adjustment, the Village still has the lowest water rate per 1,000 gallons of any CLCJAWA community.
