The Village’s sewer system serves a population of approximately 27,500. The area east of Ridge Road is serviced by a combined sewer system, while the area west of Ridge Road is serviced by a separated sanitary and storm sewer system. The entire system collects wastewater from approximately 9,000 residential, commercial, and institutional buildings, and storm water from approximately 2,500 acres of intensely urbanized area.

Street Flooding – If you notice water standing over street catch basins, either inform Public Works by calling 847-853-7500 or try to remove the debris so water can enter the storm sewer and prevent street flooding.
Sewer Lining – Sewer lining is a non-invasive technique to rehabilitate sewers by eliminating infiltration, structural defects, and root intrusion. Sewer lining does not require excavation or disruption to traffic. It is a cost-effective process which allows the Village to repair sewer lines with less disruption than the excavation method.
