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 ~ 5:45 AM, on June 25, 2021, for a period of ~ 9.0 hours, with a total discharge of 8.54 million gallons, due to a rain event of ~ 2.4″, which began on June 24, 2021 at ~ 1:20 PM, with a duration of ~ 8.5 hours.

Days are classified as 12:00p.m to 12:00p.m for permit reporting of the CSTF.

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.
