Storm sewers are designed to prevent flooding and carry rainwater that falls via the storm drain system. Public Works Department is responsible for the maintenance and repair of storm sewer mains within the Village limits. If you know of a plugged or poorly draining storm sewer, please report that information to Public Works so we may initiate necessary repairs.
Public Works Department is also responsible for the maintenance of sanitary sewer mains within the Village limits. Please note that sanitary service lines, which generally run from the foundation to the sewer main, are the maintenance responsibility of the homeowner. If you experience a sewer back-up in your home, you may contact public works and request that we investigate the sanitary sewer main for blockages or other flow problems. If the sewer main is blocked, we will initiate repairs to correct the condition. However, if it is determined that the sanitary service line is blocked, residents will need to contact a sewer maintenance contractor to correct the problem.
