Water and Sewer
Village of Beach Park Water and Sewer System Water System
The Village of Beach Park owns and operates its own waterworks system. The Village purchases water from the City of Waukegan. The water is obtained from Lake Michigan and processed at the City of Waukegan facility.
Connection to the municipal water supply is required for any lot improved with a principal structure used for human habitation, that abuts, or for which the primary structure is within 200 feet of the Village waterworks system. Although, in 1994 when the water system was installed in Area 1, the Village allowed the owners of property in this area the choice of connecting to the water system or remaining on their wells, Village Ordinance 13.04.050 requires connection to the municipal water system at transfer of title of the property. Also, connection is required if at any time the existing well is in need of major repairs. See Ordinance 13.04.050, A4, for details. Application for connection to the Beach Park water system is made at the Village Hall.
For customers connected to the Beach Park water system: $6.24 per 1,000 gallons
For customers in the water service area but not connected to the water system: $50.00 per year (billed $8.33 bi-monthly)
Water Rate Increase from City of Waukegan
As you may be aware from the note on your last water bill, the Village had to increase the water rate to our customers from $6.24 to $6.34 because of an increase in the cost of water purchased from the City of Waukegan. The cost of water has increased 10 cents per 1,000 gallons, therefore, the Village increased your water rate 10 cents, from $6.24 to $6.34, per 1,000 gallons. This price increase will be reflected on the July billing for May and June water usage. If you have any questions, please call the Village Hall at 847-746-1770.
The Village of Beach Park owns and operates its own sewer system to convey sewage to the North Shore Sanitary District for treatment and disposal. The Village sewer system is not available throughout the Village. It is available within Area 1 and in the Heatherstone community. If you are not sure if your property has access to the sewer system, phones the Village Public Works Department. Per Village of Beach Park Ordinances 13.08.040 and 13.08.060, the owner of all houses, buildings, or properties used for human occupancy, employment, recreation, or other purposes situated within the Village and abutting on any street, alley, or right-of-way in which there is located a public sanitary sewer of the Village, is required to connect such facilities directly with the public sanitary sewer. Application for connection to the Village sewer system is made at the Village Hall.
For customers connected to both the Beach Park sewer and water systems: $1.40 per 1,000 gallons
For customers connected only to the sewer system: $134.40 per year (billed $22.40 bi-monthly)
Customers located outside the Village of Beach Park but connected to Village sewers: $201.60 per year (billed $33.60 bi-monthly)
Billing for water and sewer is bi-monthly. Customers should receive their bills during the first week of January, March, May, July, September, and November. The due date for billing is typically 30 days from the date of your bill. More information below.
