Water Company Acquires New District

Story by WBGZ Radio

The Forest Homes-Maple Park Public Water District has been purchased by Illinois American Water. About 500 customers will now be served by the utility, which has been providing water to that community on a sale-for-resale basis since the 1980's.

Illinois American Water Company spokesman Karen Cotton tells The Big Z one of the issues the Forest Homes-Maple Park Water district has dealt with in the past is the frequency of having to issue boil orders.

There will be no noticeable change in service, according to Cotton, who says the utility will be sending out welcome packets in the mail soon to their new customers.
