* Correction Statement: Our 2017 Water Quality Report's "Springwells Water Treatment Plant 2017 Regulated Detected Contaminants Tables" found on the last page of the Water Quality Report under the heading "2017 Lead and Copper Monitoring at Customers' Tap" incorrectly listed the 90th percentile for lead as <2 parts per billion (ppb). The correct value for our system's most recent 90th percentile should have been listed as 4.3 ppb, which is still below the 15 ppb action level for lead. We apologize for this error. A corrected copy of the Water Quality Report within the Oak Park City Magazine and Recreation Program Guide can be found online by visiting http://bit.ly/OakParkCityMagazine. A corrected copy of the Water Quality Report can be found on the link above titled "2018 City of Oak Park Annual Water Quality Report" Or, you can request a paper copy by contacting the Department of Public Works at (248) 691-7497.
