Lake Michigan Comes to You
Each Utility Controls Its Own Supply
After leaving the pumping station, the water flows through the distribution pipes to storage tanks and metering stations serving the Commission’s wholesale customers. Once it travels ten feet beyond these metering stations, the water becomes the property of the receiving utility.
Each wholesale customer owns and operates pressure adjusting stations to increase or decrease the water pressure it needs for its own particular water works system. After leaving the pressure adjusting stations, water flows to local distribution systems where it is used for commercial and industrial purposes, as well as for fire fighting and residential consumption.

A Century of Assurance
The DuPage Water Commission system is the second largest in the State of Illinois. It will provide a better quality of water to its service area of more than 300 square miles, projected to have a population of almost one million by the year 2020. The Commission’s large network of underground mains assures DuPage County of a plentiful water supply for a least the next 100 years.
