Water Meter Dept.
The Village of Wilmette Water Meter Dept., located at the Water Plant, is responsible for the installation and maintenance of all residential and commercial water meters located within the Village. Currently the Meter Dept. has an on-going meter replacement program that includes all water meters fifteen (15) years of age and older. These replacements do require access to the water meter in your home/business and can usually be completed in thirty (30) minutes or less with very little disruption. There is no charge to the owner.
Should your home or business have a meter that requires replacement or repair, the Water Meter Dept. will contact you via mail or in person and will schedule a specific appointment that is convenient to you.
As courtesy services, the Meter Dept. advises residents on possible causes of low water pressure, high bill concerns, potential leaks, demolitions, and meter removal/re-installations for remodeling projects.
The Water Meter Dept. also oversees the Village’s Cross Connection Control program. This is a program that insures the protection of the potable water supply from contamination at cross connections in the distribution system.
If you have any questions regarding your water meter or any related issues please call the Meter Dept. at (847) 853-7537 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
