Fosterburg Water District (FWD) has been working in background for since 2016 in securing an alternate water source. 

FWD has joined resources with 6 other communities to secure an alternate viable water source for their communities. The new water source will be ground water out of the Illinois Alluvial Aquifer.  This underground water source is located just South of the intersection of State route 16 and State Route 100 or North of Nutwood.   

The group came together to form a “Not-For-Profit” Corporation with an official business title known as Illinois Alluvial Regional Water Company. The communities working together are: City of Fieldon, Jersey County Water Company, City of Dorchester, City of Bunker Hill, City of Carlinville, Central Macoupin County Water District and Fosterburg Water District.
