Illinois American Water is remodeling its Pekin District office located on Broadway Street in Pekin. The approximately $1.1 million investment to upgrade the building originally built in the early 1970s will help improve operations and workforce training.
According to Cord Crisler, operations superintendent for the Pekin District, the building will be
upgraded to support employee development and local operations. Included in the project is the
construction of a formal training facility. Crisler said, “Our team is continuously learning and training to ensure safe operations and high customer satisfaction. A dedicated space to conduct critical training will help ensure our team works as efficiently and as safely as possible.”
The office will be closed to the public during construction. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2020. Customers needing assistance are instructed to call the customer service center at 800-
422-2782, Monday through Friday, 7 AM to 7 PM. Customers can also manage their account online at www.illinoisamwater.com.
