Village of Bloomingdale Residential Sewer Service Grant Program
For residents living in the Village of Bloomingdale, there are currently two rebate offers benefitting homeowners. Call us (630) 228-1440 to help you install either the clean-out or overhead sewer for your home.
50% Reimbursement for the Installation of an Exterior Clean-out
The Village of Bloomingdale ( DuPage County ) recognizes that there is a mutual benefit to both the residential property owner and the Village when the property owner’s sanitary sewer service includes an exterior access point, commonly known as a cleanout, to enable exterior access for inspection and maintenance of the sanitary sewer service.
Once an exterior cleanout is installed, routine maintenance activities such as jet cleaning, power rodding or root cutting, and inspections using a closed-circuit television camera can be accomplished without the need to open,
remove or break interior plumbing pipes, caps, or fixtures.
An existing residential property, connected to the Village sanitary sewer system, but without an exterior clean-out may be eligible to receive a one-time reimbursement from the Village for 50% of the costs up to a maximum of $500.00 to install a new exterior clean-out on the residential sanitary sewer service located on the owner’s property.
50% Reimbursement for the Installation of an Overhead Sewer, Gate Valve, or Flap Valve
Some homes are subject to basement back-ups because of low sanitary service lines in relation to the elevation of the Village mainline sewer. During rainstorms, when excessive inflow and infiltration enters the sewer, the mainline sanitary sewer may cause sanitary sewerage to back-ups into homes. Overhead sewers (with pumped discharge capabilities for the basement level of the home) significantly reduce the frequency of such wet weather back-ups.
While overhead sewers provide greater protection from backups, lower cost alternatives such as a gate valve or flap valve installation will also be considered for this program. Homeowners should recognize that these alternatives come with increased risk of damage from backups and may involve more maintenance or operation during a rain event.
This program reimburses residential property owners with existing gravity sanitary sewer services 50% of the costs up to a maximum of $5,000.00 for the installation of overhead sewer, gate valve, or flap valve. To qualify for this program property owners must show a history of basement back-up issues related to low sanitary service lines in relation to the elevation of the Village mainline sewer.
