§ 11-1106 Establishment of water works. If a resolution to establish a  system of water works be adopted, the board of water commissioners shall  proceed to construct such system accordingly. It shall prepare a map and  plans  showing  the  sources  of  water  supply and a description of the  lands, streams, water or water rights to be acquired therefor,  and  the  mode  of constructing the proposed water works and the location thereof,  including reservoirs, mains, distributing pipes and hydrants. The  water  commissioners,  their agents, servants and employees, may enter upon any  lands for the purpose of preparing such map and plans. The map and plans  shall be filed with the village clerk, and a certified copy of such  map  shall also be filed in the county clerk's office of each county in which  any  of  the  lands  are  situated. The board of water commissioners may  acquire, in the name of the village, by purchase, if it can  agree  with  the  owners,  or  otherwise by condemnation, any land, streams, water or  water rights necessary for such system. The board may amend the map  and  plans  at  any time and such amended map shall be filed in the office of  the village clerk, and of the  county  clerk,  in  like  manner  as  the  original.  The  board  may  construct  such  water system by contract or  otherwise, and may appoint, and at pleasure remove, a superintendent  to  take  charge  of  the  system,  and  may fix his compensation or may, by  resolution, provide that any other village officer shall also act as the  superintendent of water.
