Welcome to Genoa, Illinois
Genoa is an award winning community in the heart of Illinois' historic and beautiful Kishwaukee River Valley.

Public Service Message
Over the course of the last couple days it has been brought to the attention of the City of Genoa that due to the extreme cold temperatures (and deep frost line) several residences have experienced frozen water lines. This is happening in the part of town that was established long ago.
One measure of prevention is for you to turn on your faucet and set it to a slow trickle. This practice should continue until the temperature rises to a level where the freezing of the pipes is no longer an issue; this could take several weeks.
Please test the water spigots regularly throughout the day to monitor any possible water line freeze and if you lose your water service please contact the City of Genoa administrative office at 815 784 2327.
