Utilities Information

Water & Sewer

The City's water distribution system provides water to over 9,000 customers. New customers moving into the City or moving within the City must sign up for water service through the Finance Office. This may be done by calling our office at 618-692-7500, completing the water application form available online and faxing 618-692-7558, or mailing it to our office at 118 Hillsboro Avenue, Edwardsville, IL 62025. There is a $25 application fee that will be added to your first bill. When moving out of the City of Edwardsville you must give 2 business days notification to disconnect service.  Sewer rate and fixed user rate will increase every May 1 by 5%.

It's that time of year again that we get ready for the cold weather ahead.  Just a reminder to call the City of Edwardsville to have your irrigation meters shut off for the season.  Shutting a meter off yourself is considered tampering with City property which will result in citation through municipal court.  Thank you for your cooperation.

The City bills for water, sewer, and trash services bimonthly.

To Sign up for Service please call 1-618-692-7500 or use our online form
