Lead Water Service Line GIS Dashboard Now Live on the Village Website

Over the coming several years, the Village of Brookfield will be replacing all of the lead water service lines -- water pipes connecting water mains in the public way to water meters in private properties -- to comply with a law passed by the Illinois General Assembly and which became effective Jan. 1, 2022.

There are about 6,800 water service lines in Brookfield and about one-third of them -- around 2,200 -- are made of lead. Those lead lines will be replaced as part of this capital initiative.

The Village, via a water rate increase passed in 2022, is paying the full cost for the replacement of each lead water service line. In 2024, the Village is planning to replace at least 700 lead water service lines at a cost of roughly $7.5 million.

You can see whether your property is on the list to have its water service line replaced by visiting our new Brookfield Lead Service Line Inventory Dashboard on the Village website.

The dashboard can also be found on the Village website by clicking on the "Maps" link in the drop-down menu under the "Community" tab on at brookfieldil.gov.

You can keep track of all of the Village's capital construction projects by visiting the Capital Improvement Projects page on the Village's website.
