Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 11-124-1. Contracts for supply of water.
    (a) The corporate authorities of each municipality may contract with any person, corporation, municipal corporation, political subdivision, public water district or any other agency for a supply of water. Any such contract entered into by a municipality shall provide that payments to be made thereunder shall be solely from the revenues to be derived from the operation of the waterworks system of the municipality, and the contract shall be a continuing valid and binding obligation of the municipality payable from the revenues derived from the operation of the waterworks system of the municipality for the period of years, not to exceed 40, as may be provided in such contract. Any such contract shall not be a debt within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation. No prior appropriation shall be required before entering into such a contract and no appropriation shall be required to authorize payments to be made under the terms of any such contract notwithstanding any provision in this Code to the contrary.
    (b) Payments to be made under any such contract shall be an operation and maintenance expense of the waterworks system of the municipality. Any such contract made by a municipality for a supply of water may contain provisions whereby the municipality is obligated to pay for such supply of water without setoff or counterclaim and irrespective of whether such supply of water is ever furnished, made available or delivered to the municipality or whether any project for the supply of water contemplated by any such contract is completed, operable or operating and notwithstanding any suspension, interruption, interference, reduction or curtailment of the supply of water from such project. Any such contract may provide that if one or more of the other purchasers of water defaults in the payment of its obligations under such contract or a similar contract made with the supplier of the water, one or more of the remaining purchasers party to such contract or such similar contract shall be required to pay for all or a portion of the obligations of the defaulting purchasers.
    (c) Payments to be made under any such contract with a municipal joint action water agency under the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act shall be an operation and maintenance expense of the waterworks system of the municipality. Any such contract made by a municipality for a supply of water with a municipal joint action water agency under the provisions of the Intergovernmental Cooperation Act may contain provisions whereby the municipality is obligated to pay for such supply of water without setoff or counterclaim and irrespective of whether such supply of water is ever furnished, made available or delivered to the municipality or whether any project for the supply of water contemplated by any such contract is completed, operable or operating and notwithstanding any suspension, interruption, interference, reduction or curtailment of the supply of water from such project. Any such contract with a municipal joint action water agency may provide that if one or more of the other purchasers of water defaults in the payment of its obligations under such contract or a similar contract made with the supplier of the water, one or more of the remaining purchasers party to such contract or such similar contract shall be required to pay for all or a portion of the obligations of the defaulting purchasers.
    The changes in this Section made by these amendatory Acts of 1984 are intended to be declarative of existing law.
    (d) A municipality with a water supply contract with a county water commission organized pursuant to the Water Commission Act of 1985 shall provide water to unincorporated areas of that home county in accordance with the terms of this subsection. The provision of water by the municipality shall be in accordance with a mandate of the home county as provided in Section 0.01 of the Water Commission Act of 1985. A home rule unit may not provide water in a manner that is inconsistent with the provisions of this amendatory Act of the 93rd General Assembly. This subsection is a limitation under subsection (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution on the concurrent exercise by home rule units of powers and functions exercised by the State.
