Wastewater Service Rules

No connection fee to the main is charged.  If a sanitary sewer main exists adjacent to the property, connection must be made (both gravity and forced mains).  All tie-ins must be made via approved, wye, or wrap around clamps at the tap of the sewer main.

It is the responsibility of the service-customer owner to install and maintain the sanitary sewer service line including all taps and appurtenances to the sewer main (Code of Ordinances Sec. 95.15).  Separate services lines are required for separate dwellings.

Sewer main extensions to development areas are the responsibility of the developer and shall be approved by the IDNR (Code of Ordinances Sec. 95.16).
