8/9/22 Important Message

Dear Customer,

This is an important message from Illinois American Water.  We are beginning our annual maintenance program, which includes testing and flushing fire hydrants in addition to a temporary change in water treatment.  This work is expected to begin Tuesday August 9th and will occur across our system for the next three  to six weeks.This work is part of our annual maintenance which supports continued water quality and fire protection.  While Illinois American Water crews are working, customers may experience a slight drop in water pressure or draw some discolored water for a short period of time. If your water is discolored, run the cold water taps only, at the lowest level of the house for about 3 to 5 minutes until the water runs clear. If discolored water occurs please also refrain from doing laundry during that time.While we are completing this work, our water quality team will also be switching treatment to a form of chlorine known as “free chlorine,” which does not contain ammonia. This stronger disinfectant is typically used by water utilities when flushing water mains and fire hydrants. If you have a health care need that requires purified or filtered water, you should reach out to your healthcare provider with any questions.   During the temporary treatment change, customers may experience a more noticeable chlorine taste or odor in their water.  There is no reason for concern. This is due to the switch in chlorine types.  If you are a landlord and water service is in your name, please inform your tenants so they are aware of this impact to their water service. In keeping with American Water’s focus on safety for both customers and employees, please do not approach our crews while they work. For more information or to see a map of the affected area please go to Illinoisamwater.com and click on ‘Alerts’. You may also call 1-800-422-2782 for more information. Once again, for more information please go to Illinoisamwater.com or call 1-800-422-2782. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.

POSTAL SERVICE CHANGES MAY DELAY MAIL 
On October 1, 2021 the United States Postal Service implemented new service standards that increase time‐in‐transit by 1 or 2 days for certain first-class mail, meaning it may take up to 5 days or more to deliver some first-class mail.This change to their delivery window may affect how soon you get your bill card. It may also cause a delay in our company receiving your mailed payment. 

Late payment arrival from the postal system does not constitute late fee forgiveness. Payment will be overdue the MORNING of the 18th day of each month. There will be a ten percent (10%) late charge added to each bill that is unpaid after the due date of the 17th.                                              Free Postal Cliparts, Download Free Postal Cliparts png images, Free ClipArts on Clipart Library

Your bank bill payment check may be cashed, and the money withdrawn from your account, before or after the Bank’s “Deliver By Date”. These check payments are Mailed to us and are due in our office on the 17th to be recognized as an “on time” payment. Bank Bill Payment Checks not received on the 17th of the month will incur a 10% late charge accessed to the account on the morning of the 18th. Late payment arrival from the postal system does not constitute late fee forgiveness.

At the March 1, 2022 Annual BMWC meeting, Marty Landmann, Manager/Operator, took the floor to inform the membership that regretfully BMWC will be forced to raise water rates. A 7% water usage increase to existing water rates will take effect on the April 1, 2022 billing for March 2022 water usage. The monthly minimum fee will remain at $ 28.00. Increase is due to rising costs in water provided by Illinois American Water (IAWC), EPA testing, materials, and all items necessary to operate the system. Last price increase was in 2017. In conclusion, Landmann advised that on February 10, 2022, IAWC filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission for an increase of approximately 23% for their base rates. The review process for such requests is 11 months. If the ICC grants this request, BMWC will need to re-evaluate rates.

IAWC Rate Case-Link to ICC docket #22-0210; https://icc.illinois.gov/docket/P2022-0210
