Village of Freeburg West Wastewater Treatment Plant Project

Village of Freeburg construction and improvements of the West Wastewater Treatment Plant located at 5516 Willow Springs Lane is fully financed by the Water Pollution Control Loan Program 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 will expand the West WWTP DAF from 0.40 to 0.80 MGD and the DMF from 1.00 to 2.52 MGD. Construction includes replacement of the headworks building with three influent pumps and influent screens; addition of an anaerobic basin; two aeration basins and aeration equipment; two final clarifiers; three sludge pumps; a single tertiary filter and chemical phosphorus removal; aerated sludge holding basin; laboratory/administration building; and other appurtenances. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the Village of Freeburg. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
