Proposed $36 million sewer project could cause sanitation rate hikes
WHEATON – The Wheaton Sanitary District held its final community open house on May 22 to present plans for a sewer construction project that could cost between $36 and $45 million and cause sanitation rate increases for Wheaton and southern Carol Stream residents.
Sanitary District officials, board members and members of the engineering consulting firm Baxter & Woodman explained the latest iteration of the Northside Interceptor Sewer project to construct more than five miles of underground sewer across Wheaton and parts of Carol Stream. They addressed the questions of the 50 to 60 residents who attended. Concerns ranged from road closures and traffic problems to environmental effects to mail delivery.
"It's important to have these meetings," said Sanitary District Executive Director Steve Maney. "I've found the earlier we have these type of meetings and the earlier we get the information out there, the better."
