Water System Status Program

Water is one of the area's greatest resources, but there is a finite supply available. It is important to conserve water resources, especially in times of high demand and limited rainfall.

To help reduce the City's peak water system demands, the Public Works Department has implemented a water conservation plan and color-coded water regulation program, which is also used by many surrounding communities.

Water Sense Partnership

The City of Crystal Lake is a Water Sense Promotional Partner. Groundwater is the source of all of the City's water, and there is a finite supply available. Installation of water efficient fixtures and reducing indoor water use could generate a notable decline in water demand. For example, if all outdated toilets in Crystal Lake were updated to water efficient toilets, may reduce water supply demand by up to 90,000 gallons of water per day.
