__________________________________________________________________

Many residents may not be aware that one of the major costs of operations at the Village is the processing of sanitary wastewater. Interestingly, the Village actually processes more wastewater than the potable water we produce! This means water from other places is infiltrating the Village systems. One of the most common ways that this occurs is when residents hook up their sump pumps to the Village sanitary systems. Sump pump water does not need to be treated and should not go through the wastewater treatment system. In fact, it is ILLEGAL to hook your sump pump into the sanitary system and has been since, at least, 1987.

__________________________________________________________

In an effort to reduce unnecessary and expensive treatment of water, the Village will be contacting residents and businesses that have sump pump connections into the sanitary systems and require that these be disconnected. Village staff will explain alternate methods of dealing with sump pump discharges. If you own one of these homes or businesses, we urge you now, to begin to change over your system. Please contact Joe Moore, Public Works Supervisor at 815-286-3285 for any questions on how to do this. Beginning in the month of September, any sump pump systems still connected will be required to be taken off the wastewater system. As always, the Village appreciates everyone’s efforts to control costs (that we all must otherwise absorb).
