2021 Water and Sewer Rates 

Beginning in January 2021, the Village’s water rate will be $8.98 and sewer rate will be $6.72 per 1,000 gallons of water used for customers inside the village limits. This cost reflects a 40-cent increase per 1,000 gallons of water, compared to 2020. The average Lombard home (73% of customers) uses 5,000 gallons of water each month, which equates to a price increase of $2.00 per month, or $24 for the year. The Village receives its water from the City of Chicago. As Chicago raises its rates, the Village must also raise its rates in order to purchase wholesale water from the City of Chicago, and to fund operating expenses and capital improvements.

Additionally, the Village’s monthly capital fee will increase from $5 to $5.25. This capital fee was implemented in 2020. This fee will help to fix and replace aged infrastructure, which will require approximately $31,085,000 for sewer improvements $14,711,000 for water system improvements. For more information visit
