Water Service Lines Policy

The Village of Flossmoor will be responsible for correction of all breaks in service lines from the junction of water main and service line to the water shut off valve (8-Box).

Leak Detection/Repair
When a leak in a service line is evident in the vicinity of water shut off valve, the Village of Flossmoor will make the excavation necessary to determine the precise location of the leak. If the leak in the service line is between the water main and the water shut off valve, the Village of Flossmoor will complete repair, backfill the excavation, and restore excavated area without expense to the home owner or business.

If the leak or break in the service line is between water shut off valve and the building structure, the home owner or business will, at no expense to the Village, have the leak repaired by a licensed plumber, backfill the excavation, and restore the excavated area, as required by the Village. The Village of Flossmoor is not responsible for any property damage resulting from breaks in any water mains or service lines.
