(65 ILCS 5/11-130-7) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-130-7)
    Sec. 11-130-7. There is hereby created a statutory mortgage lien upon the waterworks so purchased or constructed from the proceeds of the bonds authorized to be issued under this Division 130. This lien exists in favor of the holder of each of the bonds, and in favor of the holder of each of the coupons attached to the bonds. The waterworks shall remain subject to this statutory mortgage lien until the principal and interest of the bonds are paid in full. Any holder of bonds issued under this Division 130, or of any coupons representing interest accrued thereon, may, in a civil action, enforce the statutory mortgage lien hereby created, and may compel the performance of the duties of the officials of the issuing municipality set forth in this Division 130.
    If there is a default in the payment of the principal of and/or interest upon any of these bonds, the circuit court in any proper action may appoint a receiver to administer the waterworks on behalf of the municipality with power to charge and collect rates sufficient to provide for the payment of the bonds and interest thereon, and for the payment of the operating expenses and with power to apply the revenue in conformity with this Division 130 and the ordinance providing for the issuance of the bonds.
