The Residential Sewer Backup Prevention Program helps residents eliminate repetitive sanitary sewer backups in their basements. It provides partial reimbursement for repairs that consist of rerouting basement-level sanitary sewer drains to an ejector pump.
Qualifying repairs will be reimbursed 75% of the repair costs up to a maximum of $8,000.

Before applying, please call the Public Works Department at 630-260-2110 to determine whether your repair qualifies for reimbursement. More information, a pre-qualification form, and an application are contained in the Residential Sewer Backup Prevention Program Packet (PDF).
