Congressman Bill Foster Announces Funding for Grand Prairie Water Commission! Watch Here
“Like roots finding water, we always wind up moving towards what sustains us.”
– Mark Nepo
Six communities in the southwest suburbs of Chicago have agreed to form the Grand Prairie Water Commission to provide a sustainable and reliable water supply to meet water needs and support continued growth and development in the region. They are :
Village of Channahon
City of Crest Hill
City of Joliet
Village of Minooka
Village of Romeoville
Village of Shorewood
For the past several years communities in the southwestern suburban region have been evaluating alternative water sources due to water quantity and water quality challenges with their existing water supplies. Lake Michigan water purchased from the City of Chicago
was selected to achieve the vision of these municipalities of being leaders
in providing sustainable, reliable, and high-quality water in an innovative, collaborative, fiscally responsible and efficient manner for their communities.
The mission of the Grand Prairie Water Commission is to provide a sustainable, reliable, and high-quality water supply for the member communities by 2030 and beyond in order to support public health, safety, economic interests, and quality of life.
