Goals & Achievements
Homer Glen's Sewer & Water Task Force formed in 2004 to investigate the high
cost of water and waste water treatment and make recommendations to the Village
Board for improving service to Homer Glen residents. The Task Force members
worked alongside Village staff and legal counsel to highlight concerns
pertaining to Illinois American Water's recent request for a 13% increase to the
supply charge for unaccounted for water. During the public forum held by the
ICC several months ago, these issues were brought forward. The ICC has not made
a decision at the time of this writing, December 2008.
Most recently, the Task Force members toured the Oak Valley Treatment
facility on South Bell Road. The waste water treatment plant is undergoing
significant expansion and renovation. Illinois American representatives
provided the members an in depth look at the infrastructure, operations and
shared their long-range strategy that prompted the plant's expansion. The
facility will be a significant factor in providing adequate and state of the art
service to Homer Glen residents.
