Service Line Info and Survey
Please note: If you have previously filled out the service line survey over the past year, it does not need to be completed again. Thank you.
In January 2017, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency amended the Illinois Environmental Protection Act to include a mandate for operators of community water systems in the State of Illinois. The comprehensive service line inventory is currently being created.
This comprehensive service line inventory must include the total number of service lines in the system and include the material composition of each line. The Village is required to submit this inventory to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and would like to have all service lines identified by December 31, 2023.
The Village will be required to notify building owners and occupants of the existence of lead service lines within 15 days of discovery.
Along with the material survey, the Village of Glen Carbon will also be required to submit an initial written replacement plan to the IEPA no later than April 15, 2024, which must be re-submitted annually until a final plan is presented for approval no later than April 15, 2027. Depending on the number of lead service lines identified within the system, the Village will have approximately 15 years to replace any lead service lines found.
How can you help? To expedite the inventory process, the Village is encouraging residents to fill out the Lead and Copper Service Line Survey using the online form below or by visiting Village Hall for a copy of the form, Monday – Friday, from 7:30 am – 4 pm. If you are unsure of the material composition of your home's service line, the form linked below offers instructions that will help identify key characteristics of lead, copper, and galvanized service lines.
How to Identify if your home's service lines are made of lead, copper or galvanized steel can be found here.
