City of Berwyn issued the following announcement on Feb. 4.
Notice is hereby given that the City of Berwyn will conduct a public comment period for the purpose of
receiving public comments on the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) State Revolving Fund
(SRF) Loan Project Plan for the Depot District sewer system improvements (the “Project”). The Project is
proposed to be funded with a loan from the IEPA Water Pollution Control Loan Program (WPCLP). Public
comments are sought for the proposed Project.
The Project Summary provided by the IEPA is available for public inspection at any time on the city project
or during regular business hours at the Clerk’s Office, City Hall, 6700 W. 26th Street, Berwyn, IL 60402.
The project will increase the limited capacity of an aged system not designed to handle current demands,
replace damaged piped, correct root penetration, and reduce infiltration through pipe joints. These
problems can cause flooding and combined sewer overflows that damage property and cause health and
safety issues to the community. The green infrastructure elements, included as part of the improvements,
will provide storage for stormwater runoff and stormwater infiltration, reduce runoff and flooding, and
improve water quality.
Any person wishing to comment on the Project is welcome to. Written comments may be provided to the
City of Berwyn or directly to the IEPA by March 10th, 2020 to either of the following: Nicole Campbell,
Senior Engineer, City of Berwyn, 6700 W. 26th Street, Berwyn, IL 60402 or Chris Nifong, Project Manager,
Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Water, Infrastructure Financial Assistance Section,
1021 North Grand Avenue East, P.O. Box 19276, Springfield, IL 62794-9276.
In accordance with the IEPA Loan Rules, Title 35, Subtitle C, Chapter II, Part 365.330 (State Environmental Review),
the IEPA has determined that the proposed project may be excluded from a detailed environmental impacts review.
In accordance with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, any individual in the need of a
reasonable accommodation in order to participate in or benefit from submitting comment to the City of
Berwyn should contact City Clerk Margaret Paul at 708-788-2660 as early in advance as possible.
Dated at Berwyn, Illinois, this 4th day of February 2020.
