Water Quality Reports

The Village of Glenview is required by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to publish annually a Consumer Confidence Water Quality Report.

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 services

The drinking water in the Village of Glenview is safe. It is tested regularly for contaminants, including lead, and has never recorded an actionable lead reading.

News stories over the past decade involving lead-contaminated drinking water involve a bad water source, poor water treatment and/or lead in the distribution mains. Glenview has none of these issues. The Village purchases water from the Village of Wilmette, which sources it from Lake Michigan and treats it with the highest and best standards available. Glenview has no lead in its public distribution mains.

According to the U.S. EPA, lead can enter drinking water when plumbing materials that contain lead corrode, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures. The most common sources of lead in drinking water are lead pipes, faucets, and fixtures. In homes with lead pipes that connect the home to the water main, also known as lead services lines, these pipes can be one of the most significant sources of lead in the water.

The water quality in the Village meets or exceeds all the EPA requirements, and the Village publishes and posts its water quality report annually.

The Village of Glenview prohibited the installation or use of lead service lines beginning in 1958. However, older homes constructed before this prohibition or properties annexed into the Village after that year may not have been subject to the same requirements.
