The report summarizes the quality of the water that was provided in the past year, including details about where the water comes from, what it contains, how it compares to current standards and who to contact with questions.

Information about lead in water
The Village of Glenview does not have any public water main lines that are made of lead, and the Village of Glenview's water supply meets all federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Illinois state drinking water standards.
Depending on when a house was built, however, the homeowner's water service line connecting the public water main to the house or the internal plumbing of the house could contain lead. Older homes constructed prior to 1959 may have lead water service lines owned by the property owner. A service line carries the water from the water main in the street to the water meter in the home. Also, copper water lines within homes constructed before 1987 may have solder that contained lead. Until 2014 plumbing fixtures, such as faucets, also may have contained lead.
If concerned, there are a couple actions that could be taken by a homeowner:
- A licensed plumber can help determine if either the service line or plumbing in your home contains lead.
- A sample of the water from your home can be tested by a company. Provided for convenience only, below are two companies that can send out sample kits and perform tests. The Village does not endorse or recommend any company.
- McHenry Analytical, 4314 A Crystal Lake Road, McHenry, IL 60050. (815) 344-4044. ($60)
- Suburban Laboratory, 1950 S. Batavia Avenue, Geneva, IL 60134. (708) 544-3260. ($55)
