Lead Service Line Inventory Project

The Village of Hazel Crest is committed to providing clean, safe water for all residents. 

That’s why Hazel Crest is working to identify the location of lead service lines, which bring water from the village’s water main to your home.

In the State of Illinois, water samples are routinely collected and tested to ensure that lead and copper levels are below the regulated standard. Although Hazel Crest is currently in compliance with state water quality requirements, the village is taking proactive steps to identify the location of lead service lines.
