Water Billing & Collection
The Village of Peoria Heights bills for water services in units of 1,000 gallons of water. The current charges are as follows:
- Resident Step rate up to 6,000 gal/$56.41
- Business Step rate up to 3,000 gal/$25.11
The Infrastructure Maintenance Fee is a $5 monthly fee to help maintain and repair our water infrastructure.
It is listed on the water bill as INF.
The average bill is difficult to estimate because water consumption habits vary greatly from household to household.
Water bills are issued quarterly and are due on the 10th of the month after issued. Bills that are delinquent after the 10th of the month are assessed a late payment penalty of 10% on the amount due for water usage. A shut-off notice is sent indicating that the service will be terminated if the balance is not paid in full. A lien may also be placed on the property in accordance with Village ordinance.
New Water Service
To sign up for water service, you need to bring proof of ownership documents (document with buyer and seller's name on it) to the Water Office inside Village Hall at 4901 N. Prospect Rd. The deposit for water service is $35. Once this is completed, your water service will be in effect.
We are pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets or exceeds Federal and State requirements.
