4/14/2017: Local Study
League of Women Voters of Greater Peoria, IL
LWVGP studied ownership of the water distribution system beginning in early 2016 and determined its position in 2017.
Water is a necessary resource for human life, not a commodity. The most important attributes of a water utility are: transparency; local control of rates and quality among other issues; local governance which is co-located with the water supply and service area; public oversight; high quality service; competitive rates.
The LWVGP believes financial analysis of public ownership of a water utility is warranted.
