IEPA Mandated Cross Connect Surveys

Mar 03, 2016

The Village of Mt. Zion has begun mailing cross connect surveys to approximately half of its water customers. Due to the cost of the mailing, the remaining water customers will be surveyed next fiscal year which begins May 1st. The cross connect survey is mandated by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) in order to evaluate potential risks to the Village's water supply. Residents will be surveyed every two years.  The information collected in these surveys is only viewed by Village staff and possibly IEPA staff.  It is not shared with other agencies and will have no impact regarding the assessment of your property.  If you do not return the completed survey, the Village is required by the IEPA to inspect your property in order to collect the information.  We are asking our customers to simply fill out the survey form to the best of their ability and return it in the self-addressed envelope provided.
