About The Water Commission

Our goal is to deliver safe and clean water to families and businesses in the Western Suburbs. In addition, the Water Commission team 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 which serve a term of 6 years. Meet our commissioners here. The Water Commission is governed by volunteer board members, each who serve a term of six years.  

The Water Commission is a member of the Illinois Section American Water Works Association (ISAWWA) and the South Suburban Water Works Association (SSWWA). 

Our History

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, we deliver more than 2.5 million gallons of water every day.

In 2013, we offically changed our name to the West Suburban Water Commission to reflect our goals and the organization we have become.
