Survey to help protect local drinking water

March 24, 2015 – A survey arriving soon in the mailboxes of all Oak Park property owners is essential to protecting the community’s drinking water.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency requires communities to survey all its water customers every two years to identify and eliminate connections that could allow contaminants to accidentally flow back into the drinking water from sources such as fire protection sprinkler systems, boilers, lawn sprinklers and swimming pools.

The short survey can be completed online or returned via fax, email or U.S. Mail.

Oak Park’s cross-connection control program is managed by Elgin-based Aqua Backflow, which will gather and compile the survey information.

Respondents who have or require backflow protection, may be contacted for testing, repair or installation.
