The Village of Wilmette’s Sewer Lining Phase 5 program is underway. Sewer lining will occur in various locations throughout the Village between August and November 2022. The project includes the rehabilitation of nearly 2.5 miles of sewer lines which are 60 to 100 years old and have many cracks and root intrusions. Sewer lining is an investment in infrastructure that will help the infrastructure last an additional 50 years and will benefit our residents by reducing sewer back-ups.
This project is financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA). The Village chose this cost-effective method of repair to reduce the disruption caused by typical sewer excavation and replacement techniques.
