Notice of Increased Concrete Truck Deliveries
(Posted March 25, 2019)

Dear Neighbors:

As you may know, the Glenbard Wastewater Authority has been undergoing a large Facility Improvement Project (FIP) since 2016. Included in this project is conversion of our tertiary filters from sand filters to disc filters (completed), re-piping of the natural gas/non-potable water lines (completed), and a redesign of the raw sewage pumping building. In the redesign, a new wet well is being added onto the existing pump building that is intended to improve conveyance of flow from the sewers into the plant.

The addition onto the existing pump building requires pouring a new foundation and walls that will occur in a number of phases. This correspondence is meant to inform you the concrete pouring will continue, starting Tuesday (3/26/2019), and again there will be a noticeable increase in concrete trucks per day entering and exiting the plant. The deliveries will take place during business hours, and should not interfere with local traffic. As always, an emphasis on maintaining a proper speed limit will be reinforced. The concrete deliveries are expected to take several days and an update will be sent out near the end of the week should additional concrete be needed. As with most construction projects, these activities are weather dependent, and the daily schedules are subject to slight variations.

We appreciate your cooperation on this very important project. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your patience.

Sincerely,

Glenbard Wastewater Authority


Notice of Combined Sewer Overflow Permitted Discharge
(Posted March 25, 2019)

Public Notification Program for the Combined Sewer

The Glenbard Wastewater Authority (Authority) formed through an Intergovernmental Agreement between the Villages of Glen Ellyn and Lombard creating Regional Wastewater Treatment Facilities. Included in those facilities is the CSTF which operates under the Authority’s Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) Permit numbers IL0022471-001, 002 and 003. The Village of Lombard owns and maintains a collection system that incorporates approximately seven square miles of residential and commercial development tributary to the CSTF. The Authority, has developed this web page entry to notify the public of any discharges that occur from any of the three (3) permitted outfalls associated with the CSTF. These outfalls all discharge partially treated effluent into the East Branch of the DuPage River.

The CSTF, IL Permit Number 0022471, discharged at ~ 3:15 PM, on March 14, 2019, for a period of ~ 13.75 hours, with a total discharge of 9.0 million gallons, due to a rain event of ~ .74″, which began on March 13, 2019 at ~ 9:45 PM, with a duration of ~ 4.5 hours.

Days are classified as 12:00p.m to 12:00p.m for permit reporting of the CSTF. If at any time you have questions regarding the discharge of the CSTF to the East Branch of the DuPage River or how the Authority treats the water, please do not hesitate to contact Authority staff at (630) 790-1901.

The deliveries will take place during business hours, and should not interfere with any local traffic. As always, an emphasis on maintaining a proper speed limit will be reinforced. This first concrete pour is the beginning stages of construction of the addition, and is . The concrete deliveries for this stage are expected to take several days, depending on weather, but should be completed by Friday 3/22/19.

Later stages of construction will require additional concrete deliveries, of which GWA intends to inform our neighbors of, when the time comes.

Thank you for your patience.

Notice of Proposed Amendments to HSW/FOG Receiving Standard Operating Procedure Calculations
(Posted February 4, 2019)

Dear Neighbors and Community Members,

The Glenbard Wastewater Authority proposes to amend some components of the high strength waste/fats oils and grease (HSW/FOG) receiving standard operating procedure calculations. After almost a year of successful performance, the effectiveness of the procedures has been demonstrated, and we are therefore proposing to take the next step forward. As part of the standard operating procedures, any changes that are made require a public posting period, in which we welcome any feedback or questions you may have. The Proposed HSW/FOG Receiving Calculation Amendment SOP  is now available for review.

As always, please feel free to contact us for any reason, and thank you for your continued support


Low Flow Standard Operating Procedures
(Posted December 10, 2018)

In an attempt to mitigate odors during low flow conditions, the Glenbard Wastewater Authority has developed a Low Flow Odor Mitigation Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). The purpose of this SOP is a guide to assist plant operations staff with proactive measures to begin following when the Authority enters into low flow conditions that tend to generate additional odors.

Again, we thank you for your patience and cooperation throughout the year. We will continue to explore options to reduce the impact of incoming odors on the surrounding community and will provide updates as new developments occur.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out via e-mail, phone, or visit.

Sincerely,

GWA
