Water Capacity

Kankakee County, Illinois, has a nearly unlimited water supply by virtue of its proximity to the Kankakee River, which runs through the northeast portion of the county, as well as excellent water management by Aqua Illinois.

Aqua Illinois Statistics

The majority of our industrial and residential community is served by Aqua Illinois. Aqua's service area includes City of Kankakee, villages of Aroma Park, Bourbonnais, Bradley, Grant Park, Limestone, Manteno and Sun River Terrace as well as portions of Kankakee, Aroma, Bourbonnais, Limestone, Otto, Rockville, St. Anne, Sumner, Yellowhead, Ganeer and Manteno townships.

  • The average flow that goes by the Kankakee Water Treatment plant is 4 billion gallons per day. Aqua pulls less than 0.3% of that flow.
  • The Joseph Donovan Water Treatment Plant is capable of delivering 18 million gallons per day (MGD) of water.  Our average day is about 11 MGD.
  • The new claricone will increase the capacity of the plant by 12 MGD. The estimated in service date is the end of 2017.

Aqua Illinois Investments

Aqua Illinois has announced plans to complete $15 million in improvements to the Joseph Donovan Regional Water Treatment Plant in the City of Kankakee over the next two years. These improvements will increase the reliability of the plant and add redundancy to key treatment processes to ensure adequate supply for economic growth in Kankakee County.

This investment is part of Aqua's 2016 capital plan of $15 million for the Kankakee Division, $10 million of which is allocated for water distribution system upgrades.
