Water & Sewer Division
The Water/Sewer Division divides responsibilities into three programs: Water Distribution; Water Storage & Treatment; and Sanitary Sewer.
The water and sewer division manages the water and sewer systems utilized by residents and for fire suppression. This includes the monitoring of water to ensure the community is provided safe, high quality drinking water. Drinking water comes from ten wells which draw from shallow and deep acquifers. Approximately 700 million gallons of water is pumped and treated annually and over 7,608 water meters are maintained.
Sanitary sewers are routinely televised to identify problem areas and storm inlets are periodically vacuumed to prevent flooding and blockages in storm sewers. Five sanitary lift stations for the timely transmission of waste material for treatment to the Fox River Water Reclamation District are managed and maintained.
