Notice of IEPA Project Publication

In April 2021, the Glenbard Wastewater Authority will commence construction of the 2020 Biosolids Dewatering Improvements at the Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility located at 21W551 Bemis Road, Glen Ellyn, IL. The 2020 Biosolids Dewatering Improvements project is financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The project includes improvements to the dewatering equipment located within the existing sludge processing building. More specifically, the project includes rehabilitation of the existing belt filter presses, dewatered sludge conveyors, polymer equipment and storage, as well as upgrades to the electrical, SCADA, and FOG/HSW receiving systems located within the facility.

Once complete, the project will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the Lombard and Glen Ellyn areas of Illinois. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
