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 ~ 8:00 AM, on December 11, 2020, for a period of ~ 24.5 hours, with a total discharge of 10.391 million gallons, due to a rain event of ~ 1.69″, which began on December 11, 2020 at ~ 4:00 PM, with a duration of ~ 19.0 hours.

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