Crestwood
Illinois
View all marks
Crestwood is a village in Cook County, Illinois, United States. The population was 10,950 at the 2010 census. Crestwood has been cited as a success story by proponents of low taxes and minimal government, but in April 2009, the Chicago Tribune revealed that Crestwood's low taxes were due to illegally saving money on its water bills by secretly supplementing its drinking water from a well that was contaminated with toxic chemicals. "Officials in the south suburb had pumped tainted water to residents for more than two decades to avoid the cost of fixing leaky water mains."
