Sewer Backup Protection Grant

The Sewer Backup Protection Grant Program was established to provide financial assistance to homeowners who install systems to protect their homes from sewer backup during a heavy rain event. The program's intent is to offset a portion of the expense of modifying a building's plumbing system to prevent backflow when Village sewers are at capacity.

Eligible homeowners may qualify for a grant of 50 percent of the total cost of sewer backup prevention improvements, up to a maximum of $3,500 for installing either an overhead sewer system or a backflow prevention valve system. Click here to download the application packet.

NOTE: Although the Clean Check® valve does work, it is not a system approved under the grant program.
