Which homes in Barrington use Well and Septic Systems? Many of the homes in the village center and nearby communities have their water and waste taken care of with public water supply and public sewers. Residents pay the village a monthly bill for both. In hot summer times of drought, water supplies for gardening can be restricted to odd or even days only, and in severe drought watering of yards, grass, plants can be forbidden. This also applies to Lake Barrington Shores in Lake Barrington. Homes on larger lots are the ones that will usually have a well and septic system.
Properties in the country suburban Barrington villages are commonly built on acre or more lots and so providing water through a public system would be extremely costly. These properties have private wells. The advantages of a private well can include no water restrictions and little to no worry about water supply, not to mention no monthly bill.
