The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requires that all water systems in the State of Illinois have an effective Cross Connection Control Program. Cross connections within the public water supply are a serious concern as they can allow contaminants or pollutants to enter the public water system through what is called “backflow.” Backflow occurs when a drop in water pressure causes your water to flow in the opposite direction. This can allow contaminated or polluted water to flow back into your drinking water. Given IEPA regulations and the dangers that exist from unprotected cross connections, it is necessary to establish and maintain an effective cross connection control program to protect both our water customers as well as the integrity of the Village of Streamwood’s water supply.
 
One necessary component in this program is a survey of the water system to determine where cross connections exist.  We are requesting that you complete the survey below.
 
The Village of Streamwood is proud of the water that we deliver to you every day. By working together and cooperating in this critical program, we can further protect our water from potential contamination. Should you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (630) 736-3850. Thank you for your assistance.
