Regulatory Agencies

History

Aqua Illinois, Inc., dates to 1886 when the formation of a public water supply corporation was authorized by the Common Council of the City of Kankakee. The predecessor to the present corporation, Kankakee Water Company, was formed in 1910. In its early years, Kankakee Water Company constructed one of the first water filtration plants in the Midwest. Throughout the years since the company was founded, a number of acquisitions were made, expanding the company from the City of Kankakee to other communities in central and northern Illinois. The acquisitions added 15 operations in 7 counties. Aqua Illinois serves eight counties in 41 communities across the Prairie State. In 1988, the name of company was changed to Consumers Illinois Water Company. In 1999, a merger between Philadelphia Suburban Corporation (PSC) and Consumers Water Company (CWC) was approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission; accordingly, CWC became a wholly owned subsidiary of PSC. In 2003, PSC announced plans to change its name to Aqua America, Inc. As a result, Aqua America’s various subsidiaries changed their name, and Consumers Illinois Water Company became Aqua Illinois, Inc., on January 16, 2004.
