Water Conservation Program
Four public education initiatives will be available to residents:
- Water pledge - A commitment by residents to implement specific water conservation efforts
- Toilet leak detection and repair kits - Tools to support the identification and repair of toilet leaks
- Rain gauge and landscape irrigation kits - Explanation and promotion of appropriate and efficient landscape irrigation practices
- Rain barrel programs - Demonstration projects to promote the purchase, proper installation and efficient use of rain barrels for rainwater harvesting
The Village is also taking actions to improve its own water use and management practices. As part of the conservation pledge, the Village is strengthening its commitment to more efficient water use and improvements in operations to reduce leaks and water loss.
This program is the first regional effort to establish consistent practices for increasing water conservation among Lake Michigan water users in Illinois. This effort is being driven by a commitment to stewardship and prudent long-term planning, rather than any near-term projection of water shortage. Progress toward the water conservation goal will be measured across all participating communities on an annual basis and results will be reported on an annual basis.
Residents can get involved by picking up conservation program information at the offices of the Village of Villa Park Public Works Department, located at 11 West Home Avenue, or by viewing and downloading water conservation program brochures and other program materials which are also available at the right of this page.
