If you are receiving this notice, the Village suspects you may have a lead water service line based on the age of your home or business. Please see the attached map. If your home or business has a lead water service line, this does NOT mean you automatically have lead in your water. Please note: lead is NOT found in the Village’s water source, and it is NOT found in the Village’s treated drinking water.
Water services run from your home and connect to the Village owned water main underground. The water service runs both on public property and private property. The water service is owned by the Village on public property and by the homeowner on private property. The below illustration describes this relationship. New regulations pertaining to lead water services cover both the publicly owned side of the service and the privately owned side of the service. The new regulations require community water systems to inventory the materials of all service lines, which is why the Village is asking for your help. The Village of North Aurora will hold three public information meetings to discuss the new regulations pertaining to lead water services and what it means for the Village and its residents.
Meeting Dates and Times
- Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at 6:30 PM (Virtual)
- Wednesday, October 19, 2022, at 6:30 PM (Village Hall)
- Thursday November 3, 2022, at 6:30 PM (Village Hall)
We strongly encourage attendance for anyone who has questions about lead water service lines and their responsibilities. All meetings will cover the same information; therefore, it is not necessary to attend more than one meeting. Additionally, a copy of the presentation will be made available for viewing on the Village’s website after the October 5th meeting.
If you cannot make the meeting and wish to submit a comment, please contact me at 331-385-6255 or email@example.com.
After the October 5th meeting you will receive another mailing from the Village. This mailing will be a request to perform an online survey to identify your water service line material. An overview of the online survey will be provided at the public information meetings.
