75% Reimbursement for the Installation of a Backflow Prevention Device
During heavy rainfall events, stormwater enters the sewer system. This sudden increase of water into your city’s sanitary system may cause basement backups in dwellings and businesses. A sanitary sewer backup can be a stressful and costly problem. The installation of a backflow prevention device may give property owners immediate protection and peace of mind from recurring sanitary sewer backups.
The City of Naperville offers residents and businesses the opportunity to participate in its Sanitary Sewer Backflow Prevention Device Program. The program is open to residents who have experienced a sanitary sewer backup caused by an intense rainfall event or a surcharged sanitary sewer system. This reimbursement program allows residential and business property owners to install the backflow prevention device of their choice, with the City will reimbursing 75 % of the cost.
- You must be a City of Naperville wastewater customer
- The property owner must discuss the problem with the City of Naperville Collection and Pumping Supervisor to confirm the backup is being caused by a wastewater issue before qualifying for reimbursement
- Property owners must submit an application and be approved for reimbursement before work begins

Please note, backflow prevention devices under this program are to address sanitary sewer back-ups only, not storm water or sump pump-related backups, where water has entered the basement through foundation cracks, window wells, doors or as a result of an overwhelmed or failed sump pump.
