The Village Board approved a program for cost sharing some sanitary service repairs that may be incurred by property owners. This program may also apply to homes that are having Class 2 or lower work being performed, if the entire sanitary service from the building to the sanitary main connection is replaced. Class 3 or new construction homes are not eligible for this program.
The Village Board approved a program for eligible residences to help modify their plumbing system to minimize the possibility of sanitary sewer backups. The Village will reimburse 50% of the cost, up to $5,000 for the conversion to overhead sewer. Funding is also available for installation of a backflow valve, which may also help prevent backups but does not offer the same level of protection as an overhead sewer.
Any existing Clearwater connections (sump pumps, drain tiles, downspouts, etc.) must be eliminated to participate in the program. Please call Public Works at 630-469-5756 for more information. View the following documents for more information:
