A contractor for NORTH SHORE GAS will be checking sewer lines in your neighborhood as a precaution, beginning in the next week or so. In most cases, the contractor will be able to inspect sewer lines from the street. If unable to complete your inspection from the street, the contractor will contact you to gain access to your home or business.

Feel free to call us at 312-800-3280 with questions or concerns. We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your neighbors.
Please note: If your sewer line is currently clogged or backed up, call us at 866-573-6867 before anyone attempts to clear it.

This place is like nowhere else. We have the largest collection of private residences in a woodlands preservation setting anywhere on the North Shore. Pair that with miles of bikes paths, woods packed with hundred year-old trees and a rich natural environment on the ground below, and you’ll see why there’s nothing like it anywhere. With easy access to major highways and train lines, the city is only a hop, skip, and a jump away.

Privacy, simplicity, personality, accessibility: our residents protect it, cherish it, and are committed to its continued prosperity.

Mayor's Spring 2019 Update

April 22, 2019 Spring has returned to Riverwoods!  Jonquils and crocuses are blooming and the trees are budding out.
