Berkeley receives their water from the Hillside-Berkeley Water Commission. Hillside-Berkeley Water Commission purchases purified water from the City of Chicago and delivers safe, clean drinking water daily to Berkeley. When the water leaves Hillside-Berkeley Water Commission’s water storage facility, there is no detectable lead in it. Lead is NOT present in the City of Chicago’s source water (Lake Michigan), nor is lead in the treated drinking water received by the Village of Berkeley. You receive your treated water through a water service line. The water service line runs from the Village water main into buildings and homes. The Village owns the service line up to the exterior shut-off valve or B-Box; from the exterior shut-off valve or B-Box into the home is the property owner's responsibility. Maintaining a water service line is therefore a shared responsibility between the Village and each customer.
