Water woes

WESTVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) -- The village found out Aqua, the company they buy their water from, wants to make a 47% rate increase. The village buys its water from Aqua, then resell it.

Someone suggested the village buy water from Georgetown, but they say it would be even more expensive. They would have to pay to reverse the water flow and other hidden expenses. 

The says they're looking into every other possibility they can. Some people are still learning about the increase and others think it's big jump. 

One woman thinks it will mean the sewer cost will also jump up. But an informal complaint filed from citizens could help.
