The Village of Cary’s Wastewater Division serves to protect public health and the environment by treating sewage to meet regulatory standards. The Wastewater Division operates the Village’s wastewater treatment plant, lift stations, sanitary sewers, and performs daily testing to ensure treatment processes are working correctly. All testing is reported directly to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA).
In 2019, our wastewater division won the American Public Works Association (APWA) award. The wastewater treatment plan won project of the year in the environment category for projects less than $5 million dollars. Project included the installation of the biological phosphorus removal and ultraviolet disinfection system.
