Department - Waste Water Treatment

The Village Waste Water facilities are a 24 hour per day 7 day per week operation. When a sewer line, a pump station, or a treatment plant go into service, it is essential to the public health and safety that the systems continue to function without interruption. 

Mission Statement: 

The mission of this department is to collect and provide proper treatment of the Village wastewater for the lowest practical costs to the residents in a prudent, reasonable and responsible manner.

The Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 established a far reaching set of national programs to address water pollution. Our three treatment plants address the national agenda to protect the nations waterways.

Each plant has a state permit regulating its use. We are given standards for our effluent and we are permitted to handle a specific amount of flow at each facility.

We also have a State and Federal permit for sludge disposal that sets specific regulations on how our sludge is to be made safe prior to disposal and specific regulations on how this sludge is disposed. All of our sludge is applied to farm fields where it is used as a crop nutrient to grow corn.
