The West Suburban Water Commission, formerly the Justice-Willow Springs Water Commission, celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year.
As part of the celebration, the Commission hosted its monthly meeting on April 24 at the Willow Springs Village Hall, and followed with a Recognition Ceremony attended by local dignitaries including Congressman Dan Lipinski, IL Sen. Steve Landek, County Commissioners Liz Gorman and Jeff Tobolski, and Willow Springs Mayor Alan Nowaczyk and Justice Mayor Krzysztof “Kris” Wasowicz.
The Commission provides safe and clean water to families and businesses in the Western Suburbs. In addition, the Water Commission repairs water main breaks, monitors and ensures the quality of the water, and assists residents and businesses in managing their water consumption.
The Water Commission is governed by three board members, each who serve a term of 6 years.
The Justice-Willow Springs Water Commission was created by the State of Illinois to obtain and operate a public water system for the villages of Justice and Willow Springs. It was officially incorporated by Cook County in 1964. Since then, it delivers more than 2.5 million gallons of water every day.
