Annual Drinking Water Report

Every year, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) as required by the Safe Drinking Water Act (1996) ensures that every community water system serving at least 25 residents year round or has at least 15 service connections, provide a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). 

Below are three CCRs for the Lockport area:

Lockport Water Bills Have New Look

The Lockport Water Department has updated the water billing format to provide more information for residents.

Residents will begin receiving the new bills at the end of August. The bills will no longer be in a postcard format and will instead be in a sealed envelope. This allows the City of Lockport to include more information for the residents, including information about the bill and general citywide news.

City of Lockport Finance Director Lisa Heglund wanted to stress that the new billing format is just a visual improvement, and does not represent a change in the rate structure. "The new billing format is a way for the city to communicate to residents how their total bill is calculated and how it compares to their historical use" said Finance Director Heglund. "It also allows the city to send out important information to residents that the postcard format did not allow."

Questions regarding the bill should be directed to the City’s Water Department by calling 815-838-0549, or visiting during business hours at 222 E 9th Street Lockport, IL.

Bill Payment Options

Payments can be made at the Water Department located at 222 East 9th Street on the 2nd floor. You can also submit payments by mail or by using the drop box in the west parking lot for payments submitted before or after hours or on weekends. You can also pay utility bills at US Bank at 1103 E. 9th Street or BMO Harris Bank at 826 E. 9th Street.

RPZ Testing

Well Update

Well 13 has been rehab-ed we are just waiting for the new pipe and parts to be delivered. Once the parts are delivered we will need 2-4 days to reinstall test and sample. We do not have an exact date on all of the pipe and parts coming. We are monitoring the water daily for chlorine and pressure. Well 12 we have all the parts ordered as well as some being re-manufactured. The timeline on both are still hard to pinpoint but we are working hard to get them both done as fast as possible and done right to last for years to come.

Hydrant Flushing

City crews will be flushing hydrants starting September 8th and running until complete (fall), around mid-November. Signs will be posted when flushing will occur in your neighborhood.
