Promoting Economic Prosperity

“Businesses and developers want to be assured that there are adequate water and sewers to support their operations. Nearly 20 years ago, there were just three businesses in our industrial park, partly because we didn’t have enough water and wastewater infrastructure to support the businesses.

Today, there are more than 70 companies providing employment opportunities. During that time,

Aqua invested more than $10 million in water and wastewater system infrastructure improvements.

As a growing municipality in the Chicago Southland, having adequate water and wastewater service in place has proved critical to enable continued economic development.”
