Water Break Information

Causes of main breaks are usually corrosion of the pipe due to acidic soil or due to ground pressures created by drought or freeze/thaw cycles in the overlying soil. Breaks normally occur in older cast-iron water mains.

To report a possible Water Main Break contact the Water Department at (708) 499-7747. If calling outside of Village hours please contact the Non-Emergency Police at  (708) 422-8292.
