Great news for all Oak Park residents that experience sewer backups!
The Village is offering a grant program for qualifying homeowners that get sewage backup in their basements during times of heavy rain.
The program's intent is to offset a portion of the expense that a homeowner will incur to modify the building's plumbing system such that sewage cannot backflow in to the building when the Village sewers are full.
Eligible homeowners may qualify for a grant of 50% of the total cost of sewer back up prevention improvements, up to a maximum of $3,500.00, to install either an Overhead Sewer System or a Backflow Prevention System.
