Water flowing through the sanitary sewer system is transported through a dedicated collection system and treated before being released back into the environment. Stormwater flows from surfaces; off roof tops, streets, parking lots, etc. and is absorbed into the ground or conveyed by ditches and storm sewer to ponds and streams. Stormwater is not treated before it is released or absorbed back into the environment.
The Village's Sanitary Sewer System is owned, managed and maintained by the Flagg Creek Water Reclamation District.
