If you are experiencing a sewer back up, please contact the Public Works Department directly at (630) 620-5740. If it is after normal working hours (8:00 am-4:30 pm) your call will be directed to the Police Department non-emergency line. Public Works has an employee on call at all times.

The Village offers a program to assist homeowners with rodding and repairs of the sewer service that is within the Village right of way (Sewer Stub Program). When having your service line rodded due to a sewer back up, please contact the Public Works Department for a Village representative to witness the rodding. If a rodding is not witnessed and a blockage is present in the Village right-of-way, the Village will not reimburse residents for the rodding. The reimbursement amount is based upon the rate charged by the plumber under contract with the Village. Any amount that exceeds that rate will not be reimbursed by the Village. As of February 4, 2016 the current rate is $270 during normal business hours and $353 for evenings and weekends. 
 
The Village also offers an Overhead Sewer Grant program to assist homeowners who experience chronic sewer backup. Through this program the Village will pay up to $5,000.00 of the cost to install an overhead sewer. The homeowner is responsible to pay for the first 25%, the Village will pay up to the next $5,000 and homeowner pays any amount over the sum total.
 
 Glenbard Wastewater Authority (630) 790-1901, which is jointly owned and operated by the Villages of Lombard and Glen Ellyn, provides the majority of Lombard's wastewater treatment.  There are a few areas in the central and southern portions of the Village, and all adjacent unincorporated areas, that are served by other sewer utilities.  These properties are serviced by either Highland Hills Sanitary District, (630) 627-1930 or Flagg Creek Water Reclamation District, (630) 323-3299.  You can view the Facility Planning Area map which depicts the District boundaries of each utility.
