Elevated lead levels have been found in University Park’s water, officials say. The town is 30 miles north of Kankakee.

State sues Kankakee firm 

Estado demanda a empresa de Kankakee

KANKAKEE — The state is suing a Kankakee-based water company for allegedly failing to provide safe drinking water to a Will County town.

The target of the lawsuit is Aqua Illinois, which is the water company for much of Kankakee County.

Last week, the attorney general’s office and the Will County state’s attorney’s office filed the lawsuit against Aqua because of elevated lead levels in University Park’s drinking water.

In 2017, the company started providing water from the Kankakee River before getting a state permit to do so, the lawsuit alleges.
