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.

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