Illinois American Water to upgrade Village of Broadlands water system with new acquisition

(UI) – Illinois American Water, a subsidiary of American Water, has completed the acquisition of the Village of Broadlands water system for $425,000. Illinois American Water’s petition to acquire the system was approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission on June 1, 2023.

The newly acquired system adds approximately 155 water customers to the company’s eastern Illinois service area. Illinois American Water plans to invest in the first year on critical infrastructure, including installation of water meters and other projects to enhance water quality and system reliability.

According to Village of Broadlands Mayor Bruce Block, the sale of the water system to Illinois American Water, “will give the Village major improvements to our water system that the Village alone could not provide.” He continued, “The Village will benefit from the group of experts and eliminate operational responsibilities for the Village.”
