From its inception as a tiny water works company in the mid-1800s to its role today as the largest municipal utility in Illinois, City Water, Light and Power (CWLP) has had a long and proud—and sometimes tumultuous—history. The utility has become an integral part of the Springfield community, providing service and value that extends far beyond the high-quality drinking water and low-cost electric power produced at the utility's combined lakeside filtration plant and generating stations.
