1. Distribution: From Lake Michigan to our taps

Water comes to Homewood and Flossmoor through a long system of pipes that starts in Lake Michigan. Homewood and Flossmoor each have extremely visible signs of their water distribution systems. Water towers act as unofficial symbols of their community, but also play an important role in maintaining pressure along their town’s systems. But much of the water distribution system is below ground and unseen.
