The Wastewater Division is responsible for the operation of the Village's wastewater treatment facilities. This includes the maintenance and operation of two treatment plants, 11 lift stations, and over 90 miles of sanitary sewers.
Due to a combination of growth and changes in Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, both plants have undergone significant improvement. These improvements allow the wastewater treatment plants to collect wastewater, treat it, and to discharge the treated water into receiving streams safely.
The Wastewater Division is staffed by a Superintendent, seven Plant Operators and a Laboratory Technician.

The Village was successful in securing a low interest state revolving loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) to fund the wastewater system projects identified in the Wastewater Facilities Master Plan adopted in 2015. The loans are being issued on a project-by-project basis, with the projects spread out over a five-year period.
Village Secures Low-Interest IEPA Loan for Wastewater System Improvements
The Village commissioned a report from consulting engineering firm RHMG to plan for the infrastructure projects necessary to maintain both the aging water and wastewater systems in Roselle. The report identified over $18.9 million in needed improvements to the wastewater collection system through 2020, the majority of which are eligible to be covered by the IEPA loan.
In addition to applying for a low-interest loan from the IEPA for the projects, the Village Board authorized a combination of increased sewer rates and increased capital improvement surcharge rates in Roselle to cover the cost of the infrastructure improvements. The incremental rate increases are in effect annually from 2016 through 2020.
