[ARCHIVED] Proposed Water Billing Changes

The Village of Lombard will be considering changes to water and sewer billing and rates at an upcoming Village Board Meeting on Sept. 19, at Village Hall, at 7 p.m. The Village completed a Water and Sewer rate study with the assistance of an outside third party consultant in 2019. Based on these results, recommendations were proposed by both the Finance & Administration and Public Works & Environmental Concerns Committees, which consist of Village of Lombard residents. If approved, these changes will begin on January 1, 2020. Below is a list of the changes and more information can be found at

• The first proposed change, includes a switch from bi-monthly billing to monthly billing, in order to create a more consistent billing date for users. Monthly bills will make it easier for residents to know when bills are issued and when they are due.

• The second change includes a rate increase of $0.40 per 1,000 gallons of water. The average Lombard resident uses 5,000 gallons per month meaning most residents will experience a $2.00 monthly increase in billing.

• The third change includes a new fixed $5 capital fee per monthly bill. This fee will help to pay for Lombard’s aging infrastructure needs. With this increased capital, Lombard’s Utility Division will be able to avoid drinking water issues, of which other municipalities have been affected.
