The objective of the Water Division is to deliver potable water to its customers.  This objective is very clear and is achieved through the cooperative efforts of all Water Division employees.  The "Management by Objective" philosophy is a good choice for a water system.  People give little thought to the water system supplying their needs except on the rare occasion when they turn on the faucet and no water comes out, or it is turbid or has an odor or odd taste.  It is an unspoken tribute to the water personnel who, day after day, deliver potable water in the quantities and at the pressures desired by the customers with so very few disruptions.  The water system supplies a vital service to the public.  No modern community such as Oak Lawn could exist without a safe, dependable water system.  We, as well as all other water systems, have to meet the minimum standards and requirements of the regulatory agencies.  It is the water supplier who has the basic responsibility of providing safe water that will not impair health in any way.

Cross-Connection Survey

The State of Illinois (IEPA) requires all water systems to have and maintain an effective cross-connection program.  A component to the program is a comprehensive survey of the water system.  The Village of Oak Lawn partners with Backflow Solutions, Inc (BSI Online) to assist in cross-connection program management.  Please take a moment to complete the survey at www.bsionline.com/oaklawn
