Proposal prohibits non-rainwater in storm system

ELBURN—Elburn village officials proposed amending the municipal code to prohibit illicit connections and discharges to the storm sewer system and to fine violators.

The proposed ordinance amendment defines illicit connections as any drain or conveyance that allows non-storm-sewer water discharge to enter the storm drain system including wash water from indoor drains and sinks, sewage and processed wastewater.
