Ordinance amending the water, pretreatment, and sewer ordinances for Lake County systems.

 

Staff Summary

                     Chapter 52 and 53 of the Lake County Code of Ordinances establishes all water and sewer ordinances for connection to and operational use of the County’s water and sewer systems.

                     The Ordinances are revised periodically to consolidate several existing documents, codify established practice and operation, incorporate new conditions and Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated programs. 

                     The sewer ordinance will include a new pretreatment section to prevent non-compliance with Illinois EPA issued permits and further protect the health and safety of general public and the environment.

                     Notice will be provided to the County’s municipal partners impacted by the changes to Chapter 52 and 53 of the Lake County Code of Ordinances that will become effective December 1, 2019.
