Village of Broadview Water Customers,
The Village of Broadview receives drinking water from lake Michigan and pumps it to residents through
the Village’s water distribution system.

Recent State of Illinois regulations require the Village to make an inventory of, and develop a
replacement program for, lead water service lines owned by the Village and private property owners.
It is important to note that Broadview’s water meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s {EPA}
lead level requirements. Some of the pipes that connect older homes to the Village’s water system are
made from lead. lead services lines are a health concern because they can be a source of lead in tap
water. Lead can be harmful to humans when ingested or inhaled and has been shown to cause delays in
physical and mental development. Lead enters drinking water primarily because of the corrosion, or
wearing away, of materials containing lead in private water service lines and household plumbing.
