The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requires every water supplier to develop and implement a comprehensive cross connection control program for the elimination of existing cross connections and prevention or protection from all future cross connections. Regulations are in place to protect our drinking water systems
A requirement of the program is to conduct a survey of all water customers every two years. Kewanee water customers will receive a survey notification in the mail soon, if not already.
Please simply follow the directions on the notification for completion of the survey. There is no cost and it takes only a few moments to complete. Surveys should be completed within 30 days of receipt of the notice.
