On November 10, 2014, the
Village Board approved a program designed to provide financial and
technical assistance to homeowners for the installation of some form of
backflow prevention. The purpose of the program is to offset a portion
of the expenses that homeowners may incur to improve the homeowner’s
sanitary sewer system such that sewage cannot backflow into the basement
when the Village’s sanitary sewer system is pressurized. Eligible
homeowners may qualify for one of the following subsidies:
50% of the costs of eligible improvements for external check valves up to a maximum reimbursement amount of $2,500.
of the costs of eligible improvements for either an external flood
control system or an overhead sewer system up to a maximum reimbursement
amount of $5,000.
interested in participating in this program are asked to carefully
review information about the program before applying. If you have
questions about this program, please call the Village’s Public Works
Department at (630) 980-2020.
