Notice of Potential Odors

Dear Neighbors:

Starting the afternoon of Monday, July 20th, the Glenbard Wastewater Authority will begin draining a final clarifier tank that is used for high flow events, overnight. As are result, during the day on Tuesday, July 21st, there is the potential for some odors as we hose it down during the day in an effort to avoid any odors over the weekend. This is a normal part of our Plant Operations and we hope that if any odors are detected, they will be short-lived.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

As always, please feel free to call us for any reason at 630-790-1901 or email the Operations Superintendent, David Goodalis at dgoodalis@gbww.org.
