West Headworks Upgrades

The West Headworks provides preliminary and primary treatment on 40% of the wastewater treatment facility 125 MGD peak flows. Upgrades to the West Headworks to the Sanitary District of Decatur, 501 Dipper Lane are being financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes replacement of the west headworks screening and grit handling facilities, along with restoration of various concrete structures, pumps and valves.

Swimming Pool Credit Program Discontinued

In August of 2017 the Sanitary District of Decatur started to evaluate the swimming pool credit program. The main factors considered were the relatively low benefit for the customer compared to the cost of issuing pool credits and the fact that other options were available to residents who did not want to pay Sanitary District user fees for outdoor water uses.
