Lakeside Water District serves Southern Illinois, and this website is a service to the customers in our district.

We purchase our water from the City of Carbondale. The water in Carbondale comes from Cedar Lake. Cedar Lake is a 1,750-acre reservoir in southern Illinois, created by the damming of Cedar Creek, a tributary of the Big Muddy River, in 1974. The lake is located in Jackson County, southwest of Carbondale, Illinois.

Did You Know....

That the water you pay for when your toilet sticks and continues running is costly?

1 minute = 6 gallons of water loss
1 hour = 360 gallons of water loss
8 hours = 2880 gallons of water loss
16 hours = 5760 gallons of water loss

A toilet tank repair kit can cost as little as $7.00-$12.00 (est.) while the savings, over time can be substantial.
