75% Reimbursement for the Installation of an Overhead Sewer
If your home was constructed prior to 1975, it is probably not constructed with an overhead sewer system. Overhead sewers became a code requirement in 1975 and provide the only guaranteed protection against sewer backup, which can occur due to heavy rain flowing into sewers or a blockage.
In 2017 the Village of Arlington Heights enhanced incentives offered to property owners who may benefit from installing a Village approved Overhead Sewer System or approved Flood Control System. These types of programs, along with public improvements, can be the most cost-effective way to reduce structure flooding (one of several studies completed following a historic rain event in July 2011 that resulted in area flooding).
The Village offers a reimbursement program to assist homeowners with the cost of an overhead sewer installation by offering 75% reimbursement for eligible work up to $11,250.
