The department aids in maintaining compliance with Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) requirements and implements and enforces a wastewater pretreatment program in accordance with established Village ordinance. Since the department was created, it has taken on other responsibilities including:
Illinois Department of Natural Resources consultations
Leaking underground storage tank (L.U.S.T.) oversight
National Priorities List (Superfund) site management
Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) representation
Weed abatement on Bangs Lake
Report Illegal Storm Sewer Dumping
Please help protect our environment by calling the Illicit Discharge Hotline at 847-526-9610 if you notice anything being dumped down the storm sewer. Storm sewers drain to Bangs Lake and community wetlands. Help us keep those environmentally sensitive areas clean!
