Drinking Water Watch — Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Drinking Water Watch provides online information on the quality of water produced by community water supplies in Illinois – both from surface water and groundwater.  The Drinking Water Watch Web Portal allows citizens to directly access drinking water monitoring data and other information for community water systems in Illinois.

Citizens and officials can click on a county map or enter the name of a community and pull up all the compliance monitoring data for the supply and any violation information.  An administrative contact for the supply that citizens can call for further information is also included.  Although water supplies are required to directly notify customers of any violations of federal drinking water standards and provide an annual Consumer Confidence Report, the web site increases the accessibility of information to the public.
