The Lisle Village Board has approved the restructuring of water and sewer rates effective on May 1, 2021. The new structure will feature a fixed meter and volumetric rate, eliminates minimum water charges, and provides for more equitable charges and fees. This restructuring results from a study conducted by a professional engineering consultant, Baxter & Woodman, which reviewed ten year capital and operational needs as well as rate structures. The new structure sustainably finances system maintenance and operational needs while minimizing costs to customers.
The adopted ten-year water system capital plan addresses water system infrastructure maintenance over the next decade. The $9 million plan includes construction of 17,400 linear feet of water main, pump station improvements, rehabilitation of emergency back-up wells, water system modeling, and advancements to water meter infrastructure.
