The Village of Beach Park owns and operates its own waterworks system. The Village purchases water from the City of Waukegan. The water is obtained from Lake Michigan and processed at the City of Waukegan facility.
Connection to the municipal water supply is required for any lot improved with a principal structure used for human habitation, that abuts, or for which the primary structure is within 200 feet of the Village waterworks system. Although, in 1994 when the water system was installed in Area 1, the Village allowed the owners of property in this area the choice of connecting to the water system or remaining on their wells, Village Ordinance 13.04.050 requires connection to the municipal water system at transfer of title of the property. Also, connection is required if at any time the existing well is in need of major repairs. See Ordinance 13.04.050, A4, for details. Application to the Beach Park water system is made at the Village Hall.
For customers connected to the Beach Park water system: $6.52 per 1,000 gallons
For customers in the water service area but not connected to the water system: $50.00 per year (billed $8.33 bi-monthly)
