Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 1. The corporate limits of the Sanitary District of Chicago, heretofore organized under the provisions of this Act, within the territorial limits of Cook County, may be extended in such manner as may be provided by law to include any area of contiguous territory within the limits of said Cook County wherein the construction, maintenance and operation of sewers and sewage treatment plants and the construction, enlargement and maintenance of outlets for the drainage of the territory will conduce to the preservation of the public health.
    The Governor and either branch of the Legislature of this state shall have the right to examine the books of the trustees and all expenditures made by or in any such district, by committee or otherwise, and to call for further reports, accounts, items and copies of all contracts made by or documents held in the possession of any such trustee; and upon the failure refusal or neglect of any such trustees to accurately and completely furnish any and all such items, accounts, documents and reports of contracts as provided in this act, any and all trustees of any such sanitary district shall forfeit their office and by proceedings in quo warranto be ousted and removed therefrom; all such actions may be brought in the county where any such trustees may reside or wherein the major portion of any such sanitary district may be situated.

    Sec. 3. The corporate authority of the Sanitary District of Chicago shall consist of nine trustees. Such trustees shall be elected for staggered terms at the election provided by the general election law. Three trustees shall be elected at each such election to succeed the 3 trustees whose terms expire in such year.
    Such trustees shall take office on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in the month following the month of their election and shall hold their offices for six years and until their successors shall be elected and qualified. In all elections for trustees each elector may vote for as many candidates as there are trustees to be elected, but no elector may give to such candidates more than one vote, it being the intent and purpose of this Act to prohibit cumulative voting in the selection of members of the board of the sanitary district.
    The election of trustees shall be in accordance with the provisions of the general election law.
    By reason of the importance and character of the services performed by the sanitary district, there is a great need and it is in the public interest that such services be performed in as near a non-partisan character as possible.
    When a vacancy exists in the office of trustees of any sanitary district organized under the provisions hereof, the vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the Governor until the next regular election at which trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago are elected, and thereafter until a successor shall be elected and qualified.
    Such sanitary district shall from the time of the first election held by it under this Act be construed in all courts to be a body corporate and politic, and by the name and style of the sanitary district of...., and by such name and style may sue and be sued, contract and be contracted with, acquire and hold real estate and personal property necessary for corporate purposes, and adopt a common seal and alter the same at pleasure.
    The board of trustees shall have the power to change the name of the Sanitary District of Chicago by ordinance and public notice without impairing the legal status of acts theretofore performed by said district. Thereafter any and all references to the Sanitary District of Chicago in this Act or otherwise shall mean and include the name under which such sanitary district is then operating. No rights, duties or privilege of such a sanitary district, or those of any person, existing before the change of name shall be affected by a change, in the name of a sanitary district. All proceedings pending in any court in favor of or against such sanitary district may continue to final consummation under the name in which they were commenced.

    Sec. 3.2. The designation of the corporate authorities of sanitary districts organized under this Act is changed from "trustees" and "boards of trustees" to "commissioners" and "boards of commissioners".
    Wherever any of the terms "trustee", "trustees", or "board of trustees" is used in this Act or in any other Act to refer to the corporate authorities of a sanitary district organized under this Act, those terms shall mean, respectively, "commissioner", "commissioners" and "board of commissioners".
    The change made by this amendatory Act of 1975 is intended to change only the designations of the corporate authorities of sanitary districts organized under this Act. It shall not operate to reduce the term of any member elected or appointed to the board of any such sanitary district.
    No action taken before the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1975 by the corporate authorities of any sanitary district organized under this Act shall be rendered invalid by reason of the fact that such corporate authorities were designated as trustees or boards of trustees in relation to that action.

    The board of commissioners has full power to pass all necessary ordinances, orders, rules, resolutions and regulations for the proper management and conduct of the business of the board of commissioners and the corporation and for carrying into effect the object for which the sanitary district is formed. All ordinances, orders, rules, resolutions and regulations passed by the board of commissioners must, before they take effect, be approved by the president of the board of commissioners. If he approves thereof, he shall sign them, and such as he does not approve he shall return to the board of commissioners with his objections in writing at the next regular meeting of the board of commissioners occurring after the passage thereof. Such veto may extend to any one or more items or appropriations contained in any ordinance making an appropriation, or to the entire ordinance. If the veto extends to a part of such ordinance, the residue takes effect. If the president of such board of commissioners fails to return any ordinance, order, rule, resolution or regulation with his objections thereto in the time required, he is deemed to have approved it, and it takes effect accordingly. Upon the return of any ordinance, order, rule, resolution, or regulation by the president, the vote by which it was passed must be reconsidered by the board of commissioners, and if upon such reconsideration two-thirds of all the members agree by yeas and nays to pass it, it takes effect notwithstanding the president's refusal to approve thereof.
    It is the policy of this State that all powers granted, either expressly or by necessary implication, by this Act or any other Illinois statute to the District may be exercised by the District notwithstanding effects on competition. It is the intention of the General Assembly that the "State action exemption" to the application of federal antitrust statutes be fully available to the District to the extent its activities are authorized by law as stated herein.

Such examinations shall be practical in their character, and shall relate to those matters which will fairly test the relative capacity of the persons examined to discharge the duties of the position to which they seek to be appointed, and may include tests of physical qualifications and health and when appropriate, of manual skill. No question in any examination shall relate to political or religious opinions or affiliations. The Director shall control all examinations, and may, whenever an examination is to take place, designate a suitable number of persons to be special examiners and it shall be the duty of such special examiners to conduct such examinations as the Director may direct, and to make return and report thereof to him; and he may at any time substitute any other person in the place of any one so selected; and he may himself, at any time, act as such special examiner, and without appointing other special examiners. The Director shall, by rule, provide for and shall hold sufficient number of examinations to provide a sufficient number of eligibles on the register for each grade of position in the classified civil service, and if any place in the classified civil service shall become vacant, to which there is no person eligible for appointment, he shall hold an examination for such position and repeat the same, if necessary, until a vacancy is filled in accordance with the provisions of this Act.
    Eligible registers shall remain in force for 3 years, except the eligible register for laborers which shall remain in force for 4 years and except the eligible registers for student programs and entry level engineering positions which, in the Director's discretion, may remain in force for one year.
    Examinations for an eligible list for each position in the classified service above mentioned shall be held at least once in 3 years and at least annually for student programs and entry level engineering positions if the Director has limited the duration of the registers for those positions to one year, unless the Director determines that such examinations are not necessary because no vacancy exists.

The Director shall note of record the duties (whether imposed by law, official regulation or practice) of each classification in the classified service, and shall thereupon by rule fix lines for promotion from lower classifications to higher classifications in all cases where, in his or her judgment, the experience gained in the lower classification may tend to qualify an employee to perform the duties of a higher classification. In case of vacancy in higher classifications, which cannot be filled by reinstatement, the Director shall hold promotional examinations to fill such vacancy. Incumbents of classifications in lines of promotion established by the Director shall be solely eligible for such examination, unless in the judgment of the Director, it is for the best interests of the service that original examination for such vacancy be held. In promotional examinations, efficiency and seniority in service shall form a part of such examination, but combined shall not carry a weight of more than 25% of the total examination points. Although efficiency and seniority in service shall not carry a weight of more than 25% of the total examination points, the Director may require candidates to separately pass the efficiency and seniority parts of the examination in order for the candidates to be eligible to take the subsequent parts of the examination. If the Director requires candidates to separately pass the efficiency and seniority parts of the examination, then any candidate who does not pass the efficiency and seniority parts of the examination shall fail the entire examination. All examinations for promotion shall be competitive. The method of examination, the rules governing the same, and the method of certifying shall be the same as provided for in the original examination.

70 ILCS 2605/5.7

    (70 ILCS 2605/5.7) (from Ch. 42, par. 324q)
    Sec. 5.7. The board of trustees of the district shall consider the budget estimates as submitted to it by the executive director and may add to, revise, alter, increase or decrease the items contained in the budget. However, in no event may the total aggregate proposed expenditures in the budget exceed the total estimated means of financing the budget.
    The board of trustees shall, before January first of the budget year, adopt the budget which is effective on January first of the budget year. The appropriation ordinance and tax levy ordinance must be parts of the budget and must be adopted as a part thereof by single action of the board of trustees. The appropriation ordinance must be filed with and be a part of the tax levy ordinance, which tax levy ordinance need not contain any further or additional specifications of purposes, itemizations or details for which appropriations and the levy are made. The board of trustees shall appropriate such sums of money as may be necessary to defray all necessary expenses and liabilities of the district to be paid by the board of trustees or incurred during and until the time of the adoption and effective date of the next annual appropriation ordinance under this Section. The board of trustees shall appropriate such sums of money as may be necessary to pay the principal and interest on bonds. The board may not expend any money or incur any indebtedness or liability on behalf of the district in excess of the percentage and several amounts limited by law, when applied to the last known assessment. The appropriation ordinance must specify the several funds, organization units, objects, character and functions (activities) for which such appropriations are made, and the amount appropriated for each fund, organization unit, object, character, and function (activity). The receipts of the district as estimated in the budget and as provided for by the tax levy ordinances and other revenues and borrowing Acts or ordinances are applicable in the amounts and according to the funds specified in the budget for the purpose of meeting the expenditures authorized by the appropriate ordinance. The vote of the board of trustees upon the budget shall be taken by yeas and nays, and shall be entered in the proceedings of the board of trustees.
    The appropriation ordinance may be amended at the next regular meeting of the board of trustees occurring before January first of the budget year and not less than 5 days after the passage thereof in like manner as other ordinances. If any items of appropriations contained therein are vetoed by the president of the board, with recommendations for alterations or changes therein, the adoption of such recommendations by a yea and nay vote is the equivalent of an amendment of such annual appropriation ordinance with like effect as if an amendatory ordinance had been passed.
    Such appropriation ordinance together with other parts of the budget as the board of trustees desire must be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the district and made conveniently available for inspection by the public. Such publication must be made after the date of passage of such budget and before January 20 of the budget year, but the date of publication does not affect the legality of the appropriation ordinance or the tax levy ordinance or any other ordinances necessary to give effect to the budget. Such ordinances are effective on the first day of January of the budget year.
    The Clerk shall certify that such appropriation ordinance as published is a true, accurate and complete copy of the appropriation ordinance as passed and approved by the board of trustees. The board of trustees shall also make public, by publication or otherwise, at this time, the tax rate necessary or estimated to be necessary to finance the budget as adopted.
    After adoption of the appropriation ordinance, the board of trustees may not make any further or other appropriation prior to the adoption or passage of the next succeeding annual appropriation ordinance. The board has no power, either directly or indirectly, to make any contract or to take any action which adds to the total of district expenditures or liabilities in any budget year any sum over and above the amount provided for in the annual appropriation ordinance for the budget year. However, the board of trustees has the power, anything in this Act to the contrary notwithstanding, if after the adoption of the appropriation ordinance (1) federal or State grants or loans are accepted, (2) the voters approve a bond ordinance for a particular purpose or the issuance of bonds is otherwise authorized by law, or (3) duly authorized bonds of the district remaining unissued and unsold have been cancelled and any ordinance has been adopted by the board of trustees under Section 9 of this Act authorizing the issuance of bonds not exceeding in the aggregate the amount of bonds so cancelled, to pass a supplemental appropriation ordinance (in compliance with the provisions of this Act as to publication and voting thereon by the board of trustees) making appropriation, for the particular purpose only as set forth in the ordinance, of the proceeds of the grants, loans, or bond issue or any part thereof required to be expended during the fiscal year. However, nothing herein contained prevents the board of trustees, by a concurring vote of two-thirds of all the trustees (votes to be taken by yeas and nays and entered in the proceeding of the board of trustees), from making any expenditures or incurring any liability rendered necessary to meet emergencies such as epidemics, flood, fire, unforeseen damages or other catastrophes, happening after the annual appropriation ordinance has been passed or adopted, nor does anything herein deprive the board of trustees of the power to provide for and cause to be paid from the district funds any charge upon the district imposed by law without the action of the board of trustees.

    Sec. 7. The board of trustees of any sanitary district organized under this Act shall have power to provide for the drainage of such district of both surface water and sewage, by laying out, establishing, constructing and maintaining one or more main channels, drains, ditches and outlets for carrying off and disposing of the drainage (including the sewage) of such district, together with such adjuncts and additions thereto as may be necessary or proper to cause such channels or outlets to accomplish the end for which they are designed in a satisfactory manner; and may lay out, establish, construct and maintain, or provide for the laying out, establishing, constructing and maintaining of sewage disposal and treatment plants and works, within or without the territorial boundaries of such sanitary district, that may be advantageous or necessary in preventing the water in any channel, ditch, drain, outlet or other improvement of the sanitary district discharged into or through any river or stream of water beyond or without the limits of the district constructing the same from becoming offensive or injurious to the health of any of the people of the State, and, in the case of the Sanitary District of Chicago, beginning with the year 1925, some efficient method of treating sewage other than by water dilution shall be annually provided to create an effluent thereof which shall not be offensive or injurious to the health of any of the people of the State, and which shall be adequate to care for a population of not less than 300,000, until at least 60 per centum of the present population of the Sanitary District of Chicago has been provided for; also to make and establish docks adjacent to any navigable channel made under the provisions hereof for drainage purposes, and to lease, manage, and control such docks, and any land adjoining, or adjacent thereto, owned or controlled by such sanitary district and also to control and dispose of any water power which may be incidentally created in the construction and use of said channels or outlets, but in no case shall said board have any power to control water after it passes beyond its channel, waterways, races or structures into a river or natural waterway or channel, or water power, or docks, situated on such river or natural waterway or channel; Provided, however, nothing in this Act shall be construed to abridge or prevent the State from hereafter requiring a portion of the funds derived from such water power, dockage or wharfage to be paid into the State treasury to be used for State purposes, nor, from supervising for purposes of navigation any channel which has been heretofore or may be hereafter constructed by any such district. Such channels or outlets may extend outside the territory included within such sanitary district, and the rights and powers of said board of trustees over the portion of such channel or outlet lying outside of such district shall be the same as those vested in said board over that portion of such channels or outlets within the said district, but in the case of the Sanitary District of Chicago, such rights and powers of the board of trustees, shall not extend beyond the terminus of its main channel at Lockport in the township of Lockport, in the County of Will, Illinois.
    The Board of trustees shall have the right, power and authority by ordinance, to establish, revise and maintain rates or charges for drainage of surface water and the disposal of sewage.
    Any user charge, industrial waste surcharge or industrial cost recovery charge imposed by a sanitary district, together with all penalties, interest and costs imposed in connection therewith, shall be liens against the real estate which receives the service or benefit for which the charges are being imposed; provided, however, such liens shall not attach to such real estate until such charges or rates have become delinquent as provided by the ordinance of the sanitary district and provided further, that nothing in this Section shall be construed to give the sanitary district a preference over the rights of any purchaser, mortgagee, judgment creditor or other lien holder arising prior to the filing in the office of the recorder of the county in which real estate is located, or in the office of the Registrar of Titles of such county if the property affected is registered under "An Act concerning land titles", approved May 1, 1897, as amended, of notice of said lien, which notice shall consist of a sworn statement setting out (1) a description of the real estate sufficient for the identification thereof, upon or for which the service or the benefit was rendered, (2) the amount or the amounts of money due for such service or benefit, and (3) the date or dates when such amount or amounts became delinquent. The Sanitary District shall have the power to foreclose such lien in like manner and with like effect as in the foreclosure of mortgages on real estate.
    The foregoing provisions for asserting liens against real estate by the sanitary district to secure payment of user charges, industrial waste surcharges or industrial cost recovery charges imposed by the sanitary district shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any other remedy or right of recovery, in law or equity, which the sanitary district may have, with respect to the collection or recovery of such charges imposed by such sanitary district. Judgment in a civil action brought by the sanitary district to recover or collect such charges shall not operate as a release and waiver of the lien upon the real estate for the amount of the judgment. Only satisfaction of the judgment or the filing of a release or satisfaction of lien shall release said lien. The lien for charges on account of services or benefits provided for in this Section and the rights created hereunder shall be in addition to and not in derogation of the lien upon real estate created by and imposed for general real estate taxes.

    (70 ILCS 2605/7a) (from Ch. 42, par. 326a)
    Sec. 7a. Discharge into sewers of a sanitary district.
    (a) The terms used in this Section are defined as follows:
    "Board of Commissioners" means the Board of Commissioners of the sanitary district.
    "Sewage" means water-carried human wastes or a combination of water-carried wastes from residences, buildings, businesses, industrial establishments, institutions, or other places together with any ground, surface, storm, or other water that may be present.
    "Industrial Wastes" means all solids, liquids, or gaseous wastes resulting from any commercial, industrial, manufacturing, agricultural, trade, or business operation or process, or from the development, recovery, or processing of natural resources.
    "Other Wastes" means decayed wood, sawdust, shavings, bark, lime, refuse, ashes, garbage, offal, oil, tar, chemicals, and all other substances except sewage and industrial wastes.
    "Person" means any individual, firm, association, joint venture, sole proprietorship, company, partnership, estate copartnership, corporation, joint stock company, trust, school district, unit of local government, or private corporation organized or existing under the laws of this or any other state or country.
    "Executive Director" means the executive director of the sanitary district.
    (b) It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge sewage, industrial waste, or other wastes into the sewerage system of a sanitary district or into any sewer connected therewith, except upon the terms and conditions that the sanitary district might reasonably impose by way of ordinance, permit, or otherwise.
    Any sanitary district, in addition to all other powers vested in it and in the interest of public health and safety, or as authorized by subsections (b) and (c) of Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act, is hereby empowered to pass all ordinances, rules, or regulations necessary to implement this Section, including but not limited to, the imposition of charges based on factors that influence the cost of treatment, including strength and volume, and including the right of access during reasonable hours to the premises of a person for enforcement of adopted ordinances, rules, or regulations.
    (c) Whenever the sanitary district acting through the executive director determines that sewage, industrial wastes, or other wastes are being discharged into the sewerage system and when, in the opinion of the executive director the discharge is in violation of an ordinance, rules, or regulations adopted by the Board of Commissioners under this Section governing industrial wastes or other wastes, the executive director shall order the offending party to cease and desist. The order shall be served by certified mail or personally on the owner, officer, registered agent, or individual designated by permit.
    In the event the offending party fails or refuses to discontinue the discharge within 90 days after notification of the cease and desist order, the executive director may order the offending party to show cause before the Board of Commissioners of the sanitary district why the discharge should not be discontinued. A notice shall be served on the offending party directing him, her, or it to show cause before the Board of Commissioners why an order should not be entered directing the discontinuance of the discharge. The notice shall specify the time and place where a hearing will be held and shall be served personally or by registered or certified mail at least 10 days before the hearing; and in the case of a unit of local government or a corporation the service shall be upon an officer or agent thereof. After reviewing the evidence, the Board of Commissioners may issue an order to the party responsible for the discharge, directing that within a specified period of time the discharge be discontinued. The Board of Commissioners may also order the party responsible for the discharge to pay a civil penalty in an amount specified by the Board of Commissioners that is not less than $1,000 nor more than $2,000 per day for each day of discharge of effluent in violation of this Act as provided in subsection (d). The Board of Commissioners may also order the party responsible for the violation to pay court reporter costs and hearing officer fees in a total amount not exceeding $3,000.
    (d) The Board of Commissioners shall establish procedures for assessing civil penalties and issuing orders under subsection (c) as follows:
        (1) In making its orders and determinations, the
    
Board of Commissioners shall take into consideration all the facts and circumstances bearing on the activities involved and the assessment of civil penalties as shown by the record produced at the hearing.
        (2) The Board of Commissioners shall establish a
    
panel of independent hearing officers to conduct all hearings on the assessment of civil penalties and issuance of orders under subsection (c). The hearing officers shall be attorneys licensed to practice law in this State.
        (3) The Board of Commissioners shall promulgate
    
procedural rules governing the proceedings, the assessment of civil penalties, and the issuance of orders.
        (4) All hearings shall be on the record, and
    
testimony taken must be under oath and recorded stenographically. Transcripts so recorded must be made available to any member of the public or any party to the hearing upon payment of the usual charges for transcripts. At the hearing, the hearing officer may issue, in the name of the Board of Commissioners, notices of hearing requesting the attendance and testimony of witnesses and the production of evidence relevant to any matter involved in the hearing and may examine witnesses.
        (5) The hearing officer shall conduct a full and
    
impartial hearing on the record, with an opportunity for the presentation of evidence and cross-examination of the witnesses. The hearing officer shall issue findings of fact, conclusions of law, a recommended civil penalty, and an order based solely on the record. The hearing officer may also recommend, as part of the order, that the discharge of industrial waste be discontinued within a specified time.
        (6) The findings of fact, conclusions of law,
    
recommended civil penalty, and order shall be transmitted to the Board of Commissioners along with a complete record of the hearing.
        (7) The Board of Commissioners shall either approve
    
or disapprove the findings of fact, conclusions of law, recommended civil penalty, and order. If the findings of fact, conclusions of law, recommended civil penalty, or order are rejected, the Board of Commissioners shall remand the matter to the hearing officer for further proceedings. If the order is accepted by the Board of Commissioners, it shall constitute the final order of the Board of Commissioners.
        (8) (Blank).
        (9) The civil penalty specified by the Board of
    
Commissioners shall be paid within 35 days after the party on whom it is imposed receives a written copy of the order of the Board of Commissioners, unless the person or persons to whom the order is issued seeks judicial review.
        (10) If the respondent seeks judicial review of the
    
order assessing civil penalties, the respondent shall, within 35 days after the date of the final order, pay the amount of the civil penalties into an escrow account maintained by the district for that purpose or file a bond guaranteeing payment of the civil penalties if the civil penalties are upheld on review.
        (11) Civil penalties not paid by the times specified
    
above shall be delinquent and subject to a lien recorded against the property of the person ordered to pay the penalty. The foregoing provisions for asserting liens against real estate by the sanitary district shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any other remedy or right of recovery, in law or equity, that the sanitary district may have with respect to the collection or recovery of penalties and charges imposed by the sanitary district. Judgment in a civil action brought by the sanitary district to recover or collect the charges shall not operate as a release and waiver of the lien upon the real estate for the amount of the judgment. Only satisfaction of the judgment or the filing of a release or satisfaction of lien shall release the lien.
    (e) The executive director may order a person to cease the discharge of industrial waste upon a finding by the executive director that the final order of the Board of Commissioners entered after a hearing to show cause has been violated. The executive director shall serve the person with a copy of his or her order either by certified mail or personally by serving the owner, officer, registered agent, or individual designated by permit. The order of the executive director shall also schedule an expedited hearing before a hearing officer designated by the Board of Commissioners for the purpose of determining whether the company has violated the final order of the Board of Commissioners. The Board of Commissioners shall adopt rules of procedure governing expedited hearings. In no event shall the hearing be conducted less than 7 days after receipt by the person of the executive director's order.
    At the conclusion of the expedited hearing, the hearing officer shall prepare a report with his or her findings and recommendations and transmit it to the Board of Commissioners. If the Board of Commissioners, after reviewing the findings and recommendations, and the record produced at the hearings, determines that the person has violated the Board of Commissioner's final order, the Board of Commissioners may authorize the plugging of the sewer. The executive director shall give not less than 10 days written notice of the Board of Commissioner's order to the owner, officer, registered agent, or individual designated by permit, as well as the owner of record of the real estate and other parties known to be affected, that the sewer will be plugged.
    The foregoing provision for plugging a sewer shall be in addition to and not in derogation of any other remedy, in law or in equity, that the district may have to prevent violation of its ordinances and orders of its Board of Commissioners.
    (f) A violation of the final order of the Board of Commissioners shall be considered a nuisance. If any person discharges sewage, industrial wastes, or other wastes into any waters contrary to the final order of the Board of Commissioners, the sanitary district acting through the executive director has the power to commence an action or proceeding in the circuit court in and for the county in which the sanitary district is located for the purpose of having the discharge stopped either by mandamus or injunction, or to remedy the violation in any manner provided for in this Section.
    The court shall specify a time, not exceeding 20 days after the service of the copy of the complaint, in which the party complained of must plead to the complaint, and in the meantime, the party may be restrained. In case of default or after pleading, the court shall immediately inquire into the facts and circumstances of the case and enter an appropriate judgment in respect to the matters complained of. Appeals may be taken as in other civil cases.
    (g) The sanitary district, acting through the executive director, has the power to commence an action or proceeding for mandamus or injunction in the circuit court ordering a person to cease its discharge, when, in the opinion of the executive director, the person's discharge presents an imminent danger to the public health, welfare, or safety, presents or may present an endangerment to the environment, or threatens to interfere with the operation of the sewerage system or a water reclamation plant under the jurisdiction of the sanitary district. The initiation of a show cause hearing is not a prerequisite to the commencement by the sanitary district of an action or proceeding for mandamus or injunction in the circuit court. The court shall specify a time, not exceeding 20 days after the service of a copy of the petition, in which the party complained of must answer the petition, and in the meantime, the party may be restrained. In case of default in answer or after answer, the court shall immediately inquire into the facts and circumstances of the case and enter an appropriate judgment order in respect to the matters complained of. An appeal may be taken from the final judgment in the same manner and with the same effect as appeals are taken from judgment of the circuit court in other actions for mandamus or injunction.
    (h) Whenever the sanitary district commences an action under subsection (f) of this Section, the court shall assess a civil penalty of not less than $1,000 nor more than $10,000 for each day the person violates a Board order. Whenever the sanitary district commences an action under subsection (g) of this Section, the court shall assess a civil penalty of not less than $1,000 nor more than $10,000 for each day the person violates the ordinance. Each day's continuance of the violation is a separate offense. The penalties provided in this Section plus interest at the rate set forth in the Interest Act on unpaid penalties, costs, and fees, imposed by the Board of Commissioners under subsection (d), the reasonable costs to the sanitary district of removal or other remedial action caused by discharges in violation of this Act, reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, and other expenses of litigation together with costs for inspection, sampling, analysis, and administration related to the enforcement action against the offending party are recoverable by the sanitary district in a civil action.
    (i) The Board of Commissioners may establish fees for late filing of reports with the sanitary district required by an ordinance governing discharges. The sanitary district shall provide by certified mail a written notice of the fee assessment that states the person has 30 days after the receipt of the notice to request a conference with the executive director's designee to discuss or dispute the appropriateness of the assessed fee. Unless a person objects to paying the fee for filing a report late by timely requesting in writing a conference with a designee of the executive director, that person waives his or her right to a conference and the sanitary district may impose a lien recorded against the property of the person for the amount of the unpaid fee.
    If a person requests a conference and the matter is not resolved at the conference, the person subject to the fee may request an administrative hearing before an impartial hearing officer appointed under subsection (d) to determine the person's liability for and the amount of the fee.
    If the hearing officer finds that the late filing fees are owed to the sanitary district, the sanitary district shall notify the responsible person or persons of the hearing officer's decision. If payment is not made within 30 days after the notice, the sanitary district may impose a lien on the property of the person or persons.
    Any liens filed under this subsection shall apply only to the property to which the late filing fees are related. A claim for lien shall be filed in the office of the recorder of the county in which the property is located. The filing of a claim for lien by the district does not prevent the sanitary district from pursuing other means for collecting late filing fees. If a claim for lien is filed, the sanitary district shall notify the person whose property is subject to the lien, and the person may challenge the lien by filing an action in the circuit court. The action shall be filed within 90 days after the person receives the notice of the filing of the claim for lien. The court shall hear evidence concerning the underlying reasons for the lien only if an administrative hearing has not been held under this subsection.
    (j) If the provisions of any paragraph of this Section are declared unconstitutional or invalid by the final decision of any court of competent jurisdiction, the provisions of the remaining paragraphs continue in effect.
    (k) Nothing in this Section eliminates any of the powers now granted to municipalities having a population of 500,000 or more as to design, preparation of plans, and construction, maintenance, and operation of sewers and sewerage systems, or for the control and elimination or prevention of the pollution of their waters or waterways, in the Illinois Municipal Code or any other Act of the State of Illinois.
    (l) The provisions of the Administrative Review Law and all amendments and rules adopted pursuant to that Law apply to and govern all proceedings for the judicial review of final administrative decisions of the Board of Commissioners in the enforcement of any ordinance, rule, or regulation adopted under this Act.

The court shall specify a time, not exceeding 20 days after the service of the copy of the petition, in which the party complained of must answer the petition, and in the meantime, the party be restrained. In case of default in answer or after answer, the court shall immediately inquire into the facts and circumstances of the case and enter an appropriate judgment order in respect to the matters complained of. An appeal may be taken from the final judgment in the same manner and with the same effect as appeals are taken from judgments of the circuit court in other actions for mandamus or injunction.

    Sec. 7f. Regulation of connecting sewerage systems.
    (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to construct or install any sewerage system that discharges sewage, industrial wastes, or other wastes, directly or indirectly, into the sewerage system of the sanitary district, unless a written permit for the sewerage system has been granted by the sanitary district acting through the executive director. The sanitary district shall specify by ordinance the changes, additions, or extensions to an existing sewerage system that will require a permit. No changes, additions, or extensions to any existing sewerage systems discharging sewage, industrial wastes, or other wastes into the sewerage system of the sanitary district, that requires a permit, may be made until plans for the changes, additions, or extensions have been submitted to and a written permit obtained from the sanitary district acting through the executive director; provided, however, that this Section is not applicable in any municipality having a population of more than 500,000.
    (b) Sewerage systems shall be operated in accordance with the ordinances of the sanitary district. The Board of Commissioners of any sanitary district is authorized to regulate, limit, extend, deny, or otherwise control any new or existing connection, addition, or extension to any sewer or sewerage system which directly or indirectly discharges into the sanitary district sewerage system. The Board shall adopt standards and specifications for construction, operation, and maintenance. This Section shall not apply to sewerage systems under the jurisdiction of any city, village, or incorporated town having a population of 500,000 or more.
    (c) The Board of Commissioners of any sanitary district is hereby authorized to pass all necessary ordinances to carry out the aforementioned powers. The ordinances may provide for a civil penalty for each offense of not less than $100 nor more than $1,000. Each day's continuance of the violation shall be a separate offense. Hearings for violations of the ordinances adopted by the Board of Commissioners may be conducted by the Board of Commissioners or its designee.
    (d) Plans and specifications for any sewerage system covered by this Act must be submitted to the sanitary district before a written permit may be issued and the construction of any sewerage system must be in accordance with the plans and specifications. In case it is necessary or desirable to make material changes in the plans or specifications, the revised plans or specifications, together with the reasons for the proposed changes, must be submitted to the sanitary district for a supplemental written permit.
    (e) The sanitary district, acting through the executive director, may require any owner of a sewerage system discharging into the sewerage system of the sanitary district, to file with it complete plans of the whole or of any part of the system and any other information and records concerning the installation and operation of the system.
    (f) The sanitary district, acting through the executive director, may establish procedures for the review of any plans, specifications, or other data relative to any sewerage system, written permits for which are required by this Act.
    (g) The sanitary district, acting through the executive director, may adopt and enforce rules and regulations governing the issuance of permits and the method and manner under which plans, specifications, or other data relative thereto must be submitted for the sewerage systems or for additions or changes to or extensions of the systems.
    (h) After a hearing on an alleged violation of any such ordinance, the Board may, in addition to any civil penalty imposed, order any person found to have committed a violation to reimburse the sanitary district for the costs of the hearing, including any expenses incurred for inspection, sampling, analysis, administrative costs, and court reporter's and attorney's fees. The Board of Commissioners may also require a person to achieve compliance with the ordinance within a specified period of time. The Administrative Review Law, and the rules adopted under that Law, shall govern proceedings for the judicial review of final orders of the Board of Commissioners issued under this subsection.
    (i) Civil penalties and costs imposed pursuant to this Section are recoverable by the sanitary district in a civil action. The sanitary district is authorized to apply to the circuit court for injunctive relief or mandamus when, in the opinion of the executive director, the person has failed to comply with an order of the Board of Commissioners or the relief is necessary to protect the sewerage system of the sanitary district.
    (j) The operation and maintenance of any existing sanitary sewerage system serving territory that is annexed by a municipality located in a county with a population of 3,000,000 or more after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly is the responsibility of the municipality to which the territory is annexed, unless the sanitary sewerage system is under the jurisdiction of another unit of local government other than the District.

    Sec. 7h. Stormwater management.
    (a) Stormwater management in Cook County shall be under the general supervision of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. The District has the authority to plan, manage, implement, and finance activities relating to stormwater management in Cook County. The authority of the District with respect to stormwater management extends throughout Cook County and is not limited to the area otherwise within the territory and jurisdiction of the District under this Act.
    For the purposes of this Section, the term "stormwater management" includes, without limitation, the management of floods and floodwaters.
    (b) The District may utilize the resources of cooperating local watershed councils (including the stormwater management planning councils created under Section 5-1062.1 of the Counties Code), councils of local governments, the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission, and similar organizations and agencies. The District may provide those organizations and agencies with funding, on a contractual basis, for providing information to the District, providing information to the public, or performing other activities related to stormwater management.
    The District, in addition to other powers vested in it, may negotiate and enter into agreements with any county for the management of stormwater runoff in accordance with subsection (c) of Section 5-1062 of the Counties Code.
    The District may enter into intergovernmental agreements with Cook County or other units of local government that are located in whole or in part outside the District for the purpose of implementing the stormwater management plan and providing stormwater management services in areas not included within the territory of the District.
    (c) The District shall prepare and adopt by ordinance a countywide stormwater management plan for Cook County. The countywide plan may incorporate one or more separate watershed plans.
    Prior to adopting the countywide stormwater management plan, the District shall hold at least one public hearing thereon and shall afford interested persons an opportunity to be heard.
    (d) The District may prescribe by ordinance reasonable rules and regulations for floodplain and stormwater management and for governing the location, width, course, and release rate of all stormwater runoff channels, streams, and basins in Cook County, in accordance with the adopted stormwater management plan. These rules and regulations shall, at a minimum, meet the standards for floodplain management established by the Office of Water Resources of the Department of Natural Resources and the requirements of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.
    (e) The District may impose fees on areas outside the District but within Cook County for performance of stormwater management services, including but not limited to, maintenance of streams and the development, design, planning, construction, operation and maintenance of stormwater facilities. The total amount of the fees collected from areas outside of the District but within Cook County shall not exceed the District's annual tax rate for stormwater management within the District multiplied by the aggregate equalized assessed valuation of areas outside of the District but within Cook County. The District may require the unit of local government in which the stormwater services are performed to collect the fee and remit the collected fee to the District. The District is authorized to pay a reasonable administrative fee to the unit of local government for the collection of these fees. All such fees collected by the District shall be held in a separate fund and used for implementation of this Section.
    (f) Amounts realized from the tax levy for stormwater management purposes authorized in Section 12 may be used by the District for implementing this Section and for the development, design, planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of regional and local stormwater facilities provided for in the stormwater management plan.
    The proceeds of any tax imposed under Section 12 for stormwater management purposes and any revenues generated as a result of the ownership or operation of facilities or land acquired with the proceeds of taxes imposed under Section 12 for stormwater management purposes shall be held in a separate fund and used either for implementing this Section or to abate those taxes.
    (g) The District may plan, implement, finance, and operate regional and local stormwater management projects in accordance with the adopted countywide stormwater management plan.
    The District shall provide for public review and comment on proposed stormwater management projects. The District shall conform to State and federal requirements concerning public information, environmental assessments, and environmental impacts for projects receiving State or federal funds.
    The District may issue bonds under Section 9.6a of this Act for the purpose of funding stormwater management projects.
    The District shall not use Cook County Forest Preserve District land for stormwater or flood control projects without the consent of the Forest Preserve District.
    The District may acquire, by purchase from a willing seller in a voluntary transaction, real property in furtherance of its regional and local stormwater management activities. Nothing in this Section shall affect the District's powers of condemnation or eminent domain as otherwise set forth in this Act.
    (h) Upon the creation and implementation of a county stormwater management plan, the District may petition the circuit court to dissolve any or all drainage districts created pursuant to the Illinois Drainage Code or predecessor Acts that are located entirely within the District.
    However, any active drainage district implementing a plan that is consistent with and at least as stringent as the county stormwater management plan may petition the District for exception from dissolution. Upon filing of the petition, the District shall set a date for hearing not less than 2 weeks, nor more than 4 weeks, from the filing thereof, and the District shall give at least one week's notice of the hearing in one or more newspapers of general circulation within the drainage district, and in addition shall cause a copy of the notice to be personally served upon each of the trustees of the drainage district. At the hearing, the District shall hear the drainage district's petition and allow the drainage district trustees and any interested parties an opportunity to present oral and written evidence. The District shall render its decision upon the petition for exception from dissolution based upon the best interests of the residents of the drainage district. In the event that the exception is not allowed, the drainage district may file a petition with the circuit court within 30 days of the decision. In that case, the notice and hearing requirements for the court shall be the same as provided in this subsection for the petition to the District. The court shall render its decision of whether to dissolve the district based upon the best interests of the residents of the drainage district.
    The dissolution of a drainage district shall not affect the obligation of any bonds issued or contracts entered into by the drainage district nor invalidate the levy, extension, or collection of any taxes or special assessments upon the property in the former drainage district. All property and obligations of the former drainage district shall be assumed and managed by the District, and the debts of the former drainage district shall be discharged as soon as practicable.
    If a drainage district lies only partly within the District, the District may petition the circuit court to disconnect from the drainage district that portion of the drainage district that lies within the District. The property of the drainage district within the disconnected area shall be assumed and managed by the District. The District shall also assume a portion of the drainage district's debt at the time of disconnection, based on the portion of the value of the taxable property of the drainage district which is located within the area being disconnected.
    A drainage district that continues to exist within Cook County shall conform its operations to the countywide stormwater management plan.
    (i) The District may assume responsibility for maintaining any stream within Cook County.
    (j) The District may, after 10 days written notice to the owner or occupant, enter upon any lands or waters within the county for the purpose of inspecting stormwater facilities or causing the removal of any obstruction to an affected watercourse. The District shall be responsible for any damages occasioned thereby.
    (k) The District shall report to the public annually on its activities and expenditures under this Section and the adopted countywide stormwater management plan.
    (l) The powers granted to the District under this Section are in addition to the other powers granted under this Act. This Section does not limit the powers of the District under any other provision of this Act or any other law.
    (m) This Section does not affect the power or duty of any unit of local government to take actions relating to flooding or stormwater, so long as those actions conform with this Section and the plans, rules, and ordinances adopted by the District under this Section.
    A home rule unit located in whole or in part in Cook County (other than a municipality with a population over 1,000,000) may not regulate stormwater management or planning in Cook County in a manner inconsistent with this Section or the plans, rules, and ordinances adopted by the District under this Section; provided, within a municipality with a population over 1,000,000, the stormwater management planning program of Cook County shall be conducted by that municipality or, to the extent provided in an intergovernmental agreement between the municipality and the District, by the District pursuant to this Section; provided further that the power granted to such municipality shall not be inconsistent with existing powers of the District. Pursuant to paragraph (i) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution, this Section specifically denies and limits the exercise of any power that is inconsistent with this Section by a home rule unit that is a county with a population of 1,500,000 or more or is located, in whole or in part, within such a county, other than a municipality with a population over 1,000,000.

    Sec. 8. Except as otherwise in this Act provided, the sanitary district may acquire by lease, purchase or otherwise within or without its corporate limits, or by condemnation within its corporate limits, any and all real and personal property, right of way and privilege that may be required for its corporate purposes. All moneys for the purchase and condemnation of any property must be paid before possession is taken, or any work done on the premises. In case of an appeal from the Court in which the condemnation proceedings are pending, taken by either party, whereby the amount of damages is not finally determined, the amount of the judgment in the court shall be deposited with the county treasurer of the county in which the judgment is rendered, subject to the payment of damages on orders signed by the judge whenever the amount of damages is finally determined.
    Upon recommendation of the executive director and upon the approval of the board of trustees when any real or personal property, right of way or privilege or any interest therein, or any part thereof of such sanitary district is no longer required for the corporate purposes of the sanitary district it may be sold, vacated or released. Such sales, vacations, or releases may be made subject to such conditions and the retention of such interest therein as may be deemed for the best interest of such sanitary district as recommended by the executive director and approved by the board of trustees.
    However, the sanitary district may enter into a lease of a building or a part thereof, or acquire title to a building already constructed or to be constructed, for the purpose of securing office space for its administrative corporate functions, the period of such lease not to exceed 15 years except as authorized by the provisions of Section 8b of this Act. In the event of the purchase of such property for administrative corporate functions, the sanitary district may execute a mortgage or other documents of indebtedness as may be required for the unpaid balance, to be paid in not more than 15 annual installments. Annual installments on the mortgage or annual payment on the lease shall be considered a current corporate expense of the year in which they are to be paid, and the amount of such annual installment or payment shall be included in the Annual Appropriation and Corporate Tax Levy Ordinances. Such expense may be incurred, notwithstanding the provisions, if any applicable, contained in any other Sections of this Act.
    The sanitary district may dedicate to the public for highway purposes any of its real property and the dedications may be made subject to such conditions and the retention of such interests therein as considered in the best interests of the sanitary district by the board of trustees upon recommendation of the executive director.

The leases may contain such terms and conditions, including restrictions as to permissible use of the real property, and retain such interests therein as considered in the best interests of the sanitary district by the board of trustees upon recommendation of the executive director. Negotiations and execution of such leases and preparatory activities in connection therewith must comply with Section 8c of this Act. The sanitary district may grant easements and permits for the use of any such real property, right-of-way, or privilege, which will not in the opinion of the board of trustees and executive director of the sanitary district interfere with the use thereof by the sanitary district for its corporate purposes. Such easements and permits may contain such conditions and retain such interests therein as considered in the best interests of the sanitary district by the board of trustees upon recommendation of the executive director.
    No sales, vacations, dedications for highway purposes, or leases for periods in excess of 5 years, of the following described real estate, may be made or granted by the sanitary district without the approval in writing of the Director of Natural Resources of the State of Illinois:

    Notwithstanding any other law, if any surplus real estate is located in an unincorporated territory and if that real estate is contiguous to only one municipality, 60 days before the sale of that real estate, the sanitary district shall notify in writing the contiguous municipality of the proposed sale. Prior to the sale of the real estate, the municipality shall notify in writing the sanitary district that the municipality will or will not annex the surplus real estate. If the contiguous municipality will annex such surplus real estate, then coincident with the completion of the sale of that real estate by the sanitary district, that real estate shall be automatically annexed to the contiguous municipality.

    However, the sanitary district may:
    (a) Remise, release, quit claim and convey, without the approval of the Department of Natural Resources of the State of Illinois acting by and through its Director, to the United States of America without any consideration to be paid therefor, in aid of the widening of the Calumet-Sag Channel of the sanitary district by the United States of America, all those certain lands, tenements and hereditaments of every kind and nature of that portion of the established right-of-way of the Calumet-Sag Channel lying east of the east line of Ashland Avenue, in Blue Island, Illinois, and south of the center line of the channel except such portion thereof as is needed for the operation and maintenance of and access to the controlling works lock of the sanitary district;

    (d) Give and grant to the United States of America without any consideration to be paid therefor the right to maintain the widened Calumet-Sag Channel without the occupation or use of or jurisdiction over any property of the sanitary district adjoining and adjacent to such widened channel;
    (e) Acquire by lease, purchase, condemnation or otherwise, whatever land, easements or rights of way, not presently owned by it, that may be required by the United States of America in constructing the Calumet-Sag Navigation Project, as approved in Public Law 525, 79th Congress, Second Session as described in House Document No. 677 for widening and dredging the Calumet-Sag Channel, in improving the Little Calumet River between the eastern end of the Sag Channel and Turning Basin No. 5, and in improving the Calumet River between Calumet Harbor and Lake Calumet;
    (f) Furnish free of cost to the United States all lands, easements, rights-of-way and soil disposal areas necessary for the new work and for subsequent maintenance by the United States;

        (2) Prior to receipt of bids for the lease under this
    
Section, the fair market value of every parcel of real property to be leased must be determined by 2 professional appraisers who are members of the American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers or a similar, equivalently recognized professional organization. The sanitary district acting through the executive director may select and engage an additional appraiser for such determination of fair market value. Every appraisal report must contain an affidavit certifying the absence of any collusion involving the appraiser and relating to the lease of such property.
        (3) No lease may be awarded unless the bid of such
    
highest responsible bidder provides for an annual rental payment to the sanitary district of at least 6% of the parcel's fair market value determined under this Section, provided however, if the sanitary district determines that a parcel contains a special development impediment, defined as any condition that constitutes a material impediment to the development or lease of a parcel, and includes, but is not limited to: environmental contamination, obsolescence, or advanced disrepair of improvements or structures, or accumulation of large quantities of non-indigenous materials, the sanitary district may establish a minimum acceptable initial annual rental of less than 6% of the parcel's fair market value for the initial 10 years of the lease. In no event will the annual rental payment for each 10-year period after the initial 10 years of the lease be less than the 6% of the parcel's fair market value determined under this Section. Every lease must be awarded to the highest responsible bidder (including established commercial or industrial concerns and financially responsible individuals) upon free and open competitive bids. In determining the responsibility of any bidder, the sanitary district may consider, in addition to financial responsibility, any past records of transactions with the bidder and any other pertinent factors, including but not limited to, the bidder's performance or past record with respect to any lease, use, occupancy, or trespass of sanitary district or other lands.
        (4) Prior to acceptance of the bid of the highest
    
responsible bidder and before execution of the lease the bidder shall submit to the board of commissioners and executive director, for incorporation in the lease, a detailed plan and description of improvements to be constructed upon the leased property, the time within which the improvements will be completed, and the intended uses of the leased property. If there is more than one responsible bid, the board of commissioners may authorize and direct the executive director to solicit from the 2 highest responsible bidders written amendments to their prior bids, increasing their rental bid proposal by at least 5% in excess of their prior written bid, or otherwise amending the financial terms of their bid so as to maximize the financial return to the sanitary district during the term of the proposed lease. Upon the executive director's tentative agreement with one or more amended bids, the bids may be submitted to the board of commissioners with the recommendation of the executive director for acceptance of one or rejection of all. The amendments may not result in a diminution of the terms of the transaction and must result in an agreement that is equal to or greater in value than the highest responsible bid initially received.
        (5) The execution of such lease must be
    
contemporaneous to the execution by the lessee, each member of the board of commissioners and the executive director of an affidavit certifying the absence of any collusion involving the lessee, the members and the executive director and relating to such lease.
        (6) No later than 30 days after the effective date of
    
the lease, the lessee must deliver to the sanitary district a certified statement of the County Assessor, Township Assessor or the county clerk of the county wherein the property is situated that such property is presently contained in the official list of lands and lots to be assessed for taxes for the several towns or taxing districts in his county.
        (7) Such lease may be subject to annual adjustments
    
based on changes in the Consumer Price Index published by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, or some other well known economic governmental activity index. Any lease, the term of which will extend for 15 years or more, shall provide for a redetermination of the fair market value (independent of improvements to the property subsequent to the effective date of the lease) after the initial 10 years and every 10 years thereafter, in the manner set forth in paragraph (2) of this Section, which redetermination shall be referred to as the decennial adjustment. Where the property rental is less than 6% of fair market value due to the existence of a special development impediment, the first decennial adjustment shall not occur until the twentieth year of the lease. Such redetermination shall be as of the first day of each succeeding 10 year period, and annual rental payments shall be adjusted so that the ratio of annual rental to fair market value shall be the same as that ratio for the first year of the preceding 10 year period. The decennial adjustment shall not exceed 100% of the rental in effect on the last day of the preceding 10-year period, except when the property rental is less than 6% of fair market value due to the existence of a special development impediment, in which case, the decennial adjustment shall not be so limited until the twentieth year of the lease. The rental payment for the first year of the new 10 year period may be subject to Consumer Price Index or other allowable index adjustments for each of the next 9 years, or until the end of the lease term if there are less than 9 years remaining.
        (8) A sanitary district may require compensation to
    
be paid in addition to rent, based on a reasonable percentage of revenues derived from a lessee's business operations on the leasehold premises or subleases, or may require additional compensation from the lessee or any sublessee in the form of services, including but not limited to solid waste disposal; provided, however, that such additional compensation shall not be considered in determining the highest responsible bid, said highest responsible bid to be determined only on the initial annual rental payment as set forth in paragraph (3) of this Section.
        (9) No assignment of such lease or sublease of such
    
property is effective unless approved in writing by the executive director and the board of commissioners of the sanitary district. The district may consider, for any assignment or sublease, all pertinent factors including the assignee's or sublessee's responsibility in accordance with subparagraph (3) of this Section. The sanitary district may also condition its consent upon the redetermination of the annual rental required to be paid under any lease initially executed on or before January 1, 1983, for which the annual rent being paid thereunder is less than 6% of the current appraised fair market value of the leased property. The redetermination of any annual rental under this Section shall be consistent with the requirements of subparagraphs (2) and (3) of this Section. No assignment or sublease is effective if the assignee or sublessee is a trust constituted by real property of which the trustee has title but no power of management or control, unless the identity of the beneficiaries of the trust is revealed, upon demand, to the executive director and the board of commissioners of the sanitary district.
        (10) Failure by the lessee to comply with a provision
    
in the lease relating to improvements upon the leased property or any other provision constitutes grounds for forfeiture of the lease, and upon such failure the sanitary district acting through the executive director shall serve the lessee with a notice to terminate the lease and deliver possession of the property to the sanitary district within a particular period.
        (11) If the executive director and the board of
    
commissioners conclude that it would be in the public interest, said sanitary district may lease without complying with the prior provisions of this Section, in accordance with an Act concerning "Transfer of Real Estate between Municipal Corporations", approved July 2, 1925, as amended, to the following, upon such terms as may be mutually agreeable: (a) the United States of America and the State of Illinois, County of Cook, any municipal corporation, with provisions that the property is to be applied exclusively for public recreational purposes or other public purposes; (b) any academic institution of learning which has been in existence for 5 years prior to said lease, provided that such lease limit the institution's use of the leased land to only those purposes relating to the operation of such institution's academic or physical educational programs; or (c) any lease involving land located in a county with a population of 100,000 or less and which is leased solely for agricultural or commercial recreational uses. Any lease issued in accordance with this paragraph shall contain the provisions that such lease is terminable in accordance with service of a one-year notice to terminate after determination by the board of commissioners and the executive director that such property (or part thereof) has become essential to the corporate purposes of the sanitary district.

From and after April 1, 1958, the corporate authorities of any such sanitary district may by ordinance, establish a fund to be known as a "corporate working cash fund" which shall be maintained and administered in the manner provided by this Act for the purpose of enabling said corporate authorities to have in the treasury at all times sufficient money to meet demands thereon for ordinary and necessary expenditures for corporate purposes.
    The corporate authorities may incur an indebtedness and issue bonds therefor in an amount, when added to (a) proceeds from the sale of bonds previously issued to create or increase the working cash fund (b) any amounts collected from the corporate working cash levy and (c) amounts transferred from the construction working cash fund, will not exceed 90% of the amount produced by multiplying the maximum corporate tax rate permitted under this Act by the last known equalized assessed valuation of all property within the territorial boundaries of the sanitary district at the time any bonds are issued plus 90% of the last known entitlement of such district to such taxes as by law now or hereafter enacted or amended, imposed by the General Assembly of the State of Illinois to replace revenue lost by units of local government and school districts as a result of the abolition of ad valorem personal property taxes, pursuant to Article IX, Section 5(c) of the Constitution of the State of Illinois. The bonds shall mature within 20 years from the date of issuance and shall bear interest at a rate or rates not exceeding that permitted by "An Act to authorize public corporations to issue bonds, other evidences of indebtedness and tax anticipation warrants subject to interest rate limitations set forth therein", approved May 26, 1970, as amended.
    In order to authorize and issue such bonds, the corporate authorities shall adopt an ordinance designating the purpose and fixing the date and the amount of the bonds proposed to be issued, the maturity thereof, the rate of interest thereon, place of payment and denomination, and provide for the levy and collection of a direct annual tax upon all the taxable property of the sanitary district sufficient to pay and discharge the principal thereof at maturity, and to pay the interest thereon as it falls due. Upon the filing in the office of the county clerk of the county where the sanitary district is located of a certified copy of any such ordinance, the county clerk shall extend the tax therein provided for.
    Said bonds may be issued by the corporate authorities without submitting the question of issuance to the legal voters of such sanitary district for approval.

Upon the filing in the office of the county clerk of the county where the sanitary district is located of a certified copy of any such ordinance, the county clerk shall extend the tax therein provided for.
    All moneys derived from the issuance of said corporate working cash fund bonds pursuant to this Amendatory Act of 1957, when received by the treasurer of the district, shall be set apart in the corporate working cash fund. The moneys in such fund shall not be regarded as current assets available for appropriation and shall not be appropriated by the corporate authorities in the annual sanitary district budget, but in order to provide moneys with which to meet ordinary and necessary disbursements for salaries and other corporate purposes may be transferred, in whole or in part, to the corporate fund of the sanitary district and so disbursed therefrom in anticipation of the collection of any taxes lawfully levied for corporate purposes or in the anticipation of the receipt of such taxes, as by law now or hereafter enacted or amended, imposed by the General Assembly of the State of Illinois to replace revenue lost by units of local government and school districts as a result of the abolition of ad valorem personal property taxes, pursuant to Article IX, Section 5(c) of the Constitution of the State of Illinois. Moneys transferred to the corporate fund in anticipation of the collection of taxes shall be deemed to have been transferred in anticipation of the collection of that part of the taxes so levied which is in excess of the amount or amounts thereof required to pay any warrants or notes, and the interest thereon theretofore or thereafter issued, and such taxes levied for corporate purposes when collected shall be applied first to the payment of any such warrants or notes and the interest thereon and then to the reimbursement of the corporate working cash fund as hereinafter provided. Upon the receipt by the treasurer of the sanitary district of any taxes in anticipation of the collection or receipt whereof moneys of the corporate working cash fund have been so transferred for disbursement, such fund shall immediately be reimbursed therefrom until the full amount so transferred has been retransferred to said fund. If the taxes in anticipation of the collection of which such transfers are made are not collected in sufficient amounts to effect a complete reimbursement of the working cash fund within the second budget year following the year in which said transfer was made, of the amounts transferred from the corporate working cash fund to the corporate fund, the deficiencies between the amounts thus transferred and the amounts repaid from collection shall be general obligations of the corporate fund until repaid either from taxes in anticipation of which transfers were made or from appropriations which may be made in the annual sanitary district budgets of sums of money to apply on such general obligations or until repaid from both the taxes in anticipation of which such transfers were made and from appropriations which may be made in the annual sanitary district budgets of sums of money to apply on such general obligations.
    Moneys shall be transferred from the corporate working cash fund to the corporate fund only upon the authority of the corporate authorities, which shall by resolution direct the treasurer of the sanitary district to make such transfers. The resolution shall set forth (a) the taxes or funds in anticipation of the collection or receipt of which the corporate working cash fund is to be reimbursed, (b) for a transfer in anticipation of the extension of real estate taxes, the entire amount of taxes extended, or which the board shall estimate will be extended, for any year by the county clerk upon the books of the collectors of state and county taxes within the sanitary district in anticipation of all or part of which such transfer is to be made, (c) for a transfer in anticipation of such taxes, hereinabove referred to, to replace revenue lost by units of local government and school districts as a result of the abolition of ad valorem personal property taxes, the amount of such taxes which the board shall estimate will be received, (d) the aggregate amount of warrants or notes theretofore issued in anticipation of the collection of such taxes, (e) the aggregate amount of receipts from taxes imposed to replace revenue lost by units of local government and school districts as a result of the abolition of ad valorem personal property taxes, pursuant to Article IX, Section 5(c) of the Constitution of the State of Illinois, which the corporate authorities estimate will be set aside for the payment of the proportionate amount of debt service and pension or retirement obligations, as required by Section 12 of "An Act in relation to State Revenue Sharing with local government entities", approved July 31, 1969, as amended, and (f) the aggregate amount of moneys theretofore transferred from the corporate working cash fund to the corporate fund in anticipation of the collection of such taxes.

When moneys are available in the corporate working cash fund they shall be transferred to the corporate fund and disbursed for the payment of salaries and other corporate expenses so as to avoid, or reduce in amount, whenever possible, the issuance of tax anticipation warrants or notes.
    Any member of the board of commissioners of said sanitary district or any officer thereof or any other person holding any other position of trust or employment under the said board, who is guilty of the wilful violation of any of the provisions of this Amendatory Act of 1957, shall be guilty of a business offense and shall be fined not exceeding $10,000 and shall forfeit his right to his office, trust or employment and shall be removed therefrom. Any such member, officer or person shall be liable for any sum that may be unlawfully diverted from the corporate working cash fund or otherwise used, to be recovered by the corporate authorities of said sanitary district or by any taxpayer in the name and for the benefit of said board of commissioners in an appropriate civil action. A taxpayer so suing shall file a bond for and shall be liable for, all costs, taxed against the board of commissioners in such a suit. Nothing herein shall bar any other remedies.
    The authority granted by this Amendatory Act of 1957 shall be cumulative authority for the issuance of bonds and shall not be held to repeal any laws with respect thereto.

Moneys shall be transferred from the stormwater working cash fund to the stormwater fund only upon the authority of the corporate authorities, which shall by resolution direct the treasurer of the sanitary district to make transfers. The resolution shall set forth (1) the entire amount of real estate taxes extended or estimated to be extended from which the stormwater working cash fund will be reimbursed, and (2) the aggregate amount of moneys theretofore transferred from the stormwater working cash fund to the stormwater fund in anticipation of the collection of such taxes. The amount that the resolution directs the treasurer of the sanitary district to transfer in anticipation of the collection of taxes levied, when added to the aggregate amount of any such transfers theretofore made, shall not exceed the aggregate of 100% of the actual or estimated amount of such taxes extended or to be extended.
    Upon the receipt by the treasurer of the sanitary district of any taxes in anticipation of the collection of which moneys of the stormwater working cash fund have been so transferred for disbursement, that fund shall immediately be reimbursed from those taxes until the full amount so transferred has been retransferred to the fund. If the taxes in anticipation of the collection of which such a transfer was made are not collected in sufficient amounts to effect a complete reimbursement of the stormwater working cash fund within the second budget year following the year in which the transfer was made, the deficiencies between the amounts so transferred and the amounts repaid shall be general obligations of the stormwater fund until repaid from taxes in anticipation of which such transfers were made or from appropriations which may be made in annual sanitary district budgets of sums of money to apply on such general obligations.
    Any member of the board of commissioners of the sanitary district, any officer thereof, and any other person holding any other position of trust or employment under that board who is guilty of the willful violation of any of the provisions of this Section commits a business offense and shall be fined an amount not exceeding $10,000 and shall forfeit the right to his or her office, trust, or employment and be removed therefrom. Any such member, officer, or person shall be liable for any sum that he or she may cause to be unlawfully diverted from the stormwater working cash fund or otherwise improperly used, to be recovered by the corporate authorities of the sanitary district or by any taxpayer in the name and for the benefit of the board of commissioners in an appropriate civil action. A taxpayer so suing shall file a bond for, and shall be liable for, all costs taxed against the board of commissioners in the suit. Nothing herein shall bar any other remedies.

    (70 ILCS 2605/10.5) (from Ch. 42, par. 329e)
    Sec. 10.5. If after the public hearing the board of trustees of the sanitary district adopts a resolution to proceed with the construction or acquisition of the project, the board of trustees has the power to make and enforce all needful rules and regulations in connection with the construction, acquisition, improvement, or extension, and with the management and maintenance of the project to be constructed or acquired. The board of trustees also has the power to establish the rate or charge to each user of the sewerage system or drainage system, or improvement or extension at a rate which will be sufficient to pay the principal and interest of any bonds, issued to pay the cost thereof, maintenance, and operation of the system, improvement or extension and to provide an adequate depreciation fund therefor. Charges or rates shall be established, revised, and maintained by ordinance and become payable as the board of trustees may determine by ordinance. Such charges or rates shall be liens upon the real estate upon or for which sewerage service or drainage system is supplied; provided, however, such liens shall not attach to such real estate until such charges or rates have become delinquent as provided by the ordinance of the sanitary district fixing a delinquency date. A lien is created under the preceding sentence only if the sanitary district sends to the owner or owners of record of the real estate, as referenced by the taxpayer's identification number, (i) a copy of each delinquency notice sent to the person who is delinquent in paying the charges or rates or other notice sufficient to inform the owner or owners of record, as referenced by the taxpayer's identification number, that the charges or rates have become delinquent and (ii) a notice that unpaid charges or rates may create a lien on the real estate under this Section. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to give the sanitary district a preference over the rights of any purchaser, mortgagee, judgment creditor or other lien holder arising prior to the filing in the office of the recorder of the county in which real estate is located, or in the office of the registrar of titles of such county if the property affected is registered under the Torrens System, of notice of said lien. The notice shall constitute a sworn statement setting out (1) a description of the real estate sufficient for the identification thereof, upon or for which the sewerage service or drainage system was supplied, (2) the amount or amounts of money due for such sewerage or drainage service, and (3) the date or dates when such amount or amounts became delinquent. The sanitary district shall send a copy of the notice of the lien to the owner or owners of record of the real estate, as referenced by the taxpayer's identification number. The sanitary district shall have the power to foreclose such lien in like manner and with like effect as in the foreclosure of mortgages on real estate.
    The sanitary district also has the power, from time to time, to sue the occupant or user of the real estate in a civil action to recover the money due for sewerage or drainage service, plus a reasonable attorney's fee by the court. However, whenever a judgment is obtained in such a civil action, the foregoing provision of this section with respect to filing sworn statements of such delinquencies in the office of the recorder and creating a lien against the real estate shall not be effective as to the charges sued upon and no lien shall exist thereafter against the real estate for that delinquency. Judgment in such a civil action operates as a release and waiver of the lien upon the real estate for the amount of the judgment. The charge provided in this section to be made against each user of an improvement or extension shall be in addition to the charge, if any, made of all users of the system, and shall be kept separate and distinct therefrom.

    Sec. 12. Power to levy taxes. The board of commissioners annually may levy taxes for corporate purposes upon property within the territorial limits of such sanitary district, the aggregate amount of which, exclusive of the amount levied for (a) the payment of bonded indebtedness and the interest on bonded indebtedness (b) employees' annuity and benefit purposes (c) construction purposes, and (d) for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a reserve fund for the payment of claims, awards, losses, judgments, liabilities, settlements, or demands and associated attorney's fees and costs that might be imposed on or incurred by such sanitary district in matters including, but not limited to, the Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act, any claim in tort, any claim of deprivation of any constitutional or statutory right or protection, for all expenses, fees, and costs, both direct and in support of the repair or replacement of any property owned by such sanitary district which is damaged by fire, flood, explosion, vandalism or any other peril, natural or manmade, shall not exceed the sum produced by extending the rate of .46% for each of the years 1979 through 2004 and by extending the rate of 0.41% for the year 2005 and each year thereafter, upon the assessed valuation of all taxable property within the sanitary district as equalized and determined for State and local taxes.
    In addition, for stormwater management purposes, including but not limited to those provided in subsection (f) of Section 7(h), the board of commissioners may levy taxes for the year 2005 and each year thereafter at a rate not to exceed 0.05% of the assessed valuation of all taxable property within the District as equalized and determined for State and local taxes.
    And in addition thereto, for construction purposes as defined in Section 5.2 of this Act, the board of commissioners may levy taxes for the year 1985 and each year thereafter which shall be at a rate not to exceed .10% of the assessed valuation of all taxable property within the sanitary district as equalized and determined for State and local taxes. Amounts realized from taxes so levied for construction purposes shall be limited for use to such purposes and shall not be available for appropriation or used to defray the cost of repairs to or expense of maintaining or operating existing or future facilities, but such restrictions, however, shall not apply to additions, alterations, enlargements, and replacements which will add appreciably to the value, utility, or the useful life of said facilities. Such rates shall be extended against the assessed valuation of the taxable property within the corporate limits as the same shall be assessed and equalized for the county taxes for the year in which the levy is made and said board shall cause the amount to be raised by taxation in each year to be certified to the county clerk on or before the thirtieth day of March; provided, however, that if during the budget year the General Assembly authorizes an increase in such rates, the board of commissioners may adopt a supplemental levy and shall make such certification to the County Clerk on or before the thirtieth day of December.
    For the purpose of establishing and maintaining a reserve fund for the payment of claims, awards, losses, judgments, liabilities, settlements, or demands and associated attorney's fees and costs that might be imposed on or incurred by such sanitary district in matters including, but not limited to, the Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act, any claim in tort, any claim of deprivation of any constitutional or statutory right or protection, for all expenses, fees, and costs, both direct and in support of any property owned by such sanitary district which is damaged by fire, flood, explosion, vandalism or any other peril, natural or man-made, such sanitary district may also levy annually upon all taxable property within its territorial limits a tax not to exceed .005% of the assessed valuation of said taxable property as equalized and determined for State and local taxes; provided, however, the aggregate amount which may be accumulated in such reserve fund shall not exceed .05% of such assessed valuation.
    All taxes so levied and certified shall be collected and enforced in the same manner and by the same officers as State and county taxes, and shall be paid over by the officer collecting the same to the treasurer of the sanitary district, in the manner and at the time provided by the general revenue law. No part of the taxes hereby authorized shall be used by such sanitary district for the construction of permanent, fixed, immovable bridges across any channel constructed under the provisions of this Act. All bridges built across such channel shall not necessarily interfere with or obstruct the navigation of such channel, when the same becomes a navigable stream, as provided in Section 24 of this Act, but such bridges shall be so constructed that they can be raised, swung or moved out of the way of vessels, tugs, boats or other water craft navigating such channel. Nothing in this Act shall be so construed as to compel said district to maintain or operate said bridges, as movable bridges, for a period of 9 years from and after the time when the water has been turned into said channel pursuant to law, unless the needs of general navigation of the Des Plaines and Illinois Rivers, when connected by said channel, sooner require it. In levying taxes the board of commissioners, in order to produce the net amount required by the levies for payment of bonds and interest thereon, shall include an amount or rate estimated to be sufficient to cover losses in collection of taxes, the cost of collecting taxes, abatements in the amount of such taxes as extended on the collector's books and the amount of such taxes collection of which will be deferred; the amount so added for the purpose of producing the net amount required shall not exceed any applicable maximum tax rate or amount.

It shall constitute no objection to any special assessment, that the improvement for which the same is levied is partly outside the limits of such incorporation, but no special assessment shall be made upon property situated outside of such sanitary district, and in no case shall any property be assessed more than it will be benefited by the improvement for which the assessment is levied. The proceedings for making, levying, collecting and enforcing of any special assessment levied hereunder, shall be the same, as nearly as may be, as is prescribed by Article 9, Division 2, or Article 9, Division 3, of the "Illinois Municipal Code", approved May 29, 1961, subject to any restrictions appearing in such divisions. However, once an improvement is begun under the procedures of one of these Divisions it must be completed pursuant to the procedure of that Division.

No more of any assessment need be returned or certified to the county collector than will show the amount due and unpaid at the time of such return, and no sale of any parcel of land for any installment of an assessment shall discharge the premises from any subsequent installment of the same or any other assessment. Any one or all of the installments may be paid any time after the assessment is confirmed, with accrued interest, if any, to the date of payment.

However, proceedings to ascertain the compensation to be paid for taking or damaging private property shall in all cases, be instituted in the county where the property sought to be taken or damaged is situated and all damages to property whether determined by agreement or by final judgment of court shall be paid out of the annual district tax, prior to the payment of any other debt or obligation. In the event the board of trustees of such sanitary district shall determine that negotiations for the acquisition property for flood control projects or easements for sewers or sewer improvement over, under or upon certain parcels or tracts of land necessary for the right of way for any improvement which such District is authorized to make have proven unsuccessful and the Board of Trustees shall have by resolution adopted a schedule or plan of operation for the execution of the project and therein made a finding that it is necessary to take such property immediately or at some specified later date in order to comply with the schedule, the Board may commence proceedings to acquire such property or easements in the same manner provided in Article 20 of the Eminent Domain Act (quick-take procedure).

    Sec. 27. If any channel is constructed under Section 23 of this Act, the trustees of such district shall, when such channel is completed, and before any water or sewage is admitted therein, duly notify, in writing, the Governor of this State of such fact. The Governor shall, upon receipt of notice, appoint 3 discreet persons as commissioners, one of whom shall be a resident of the City of Joliet or between said city and the City of LaSalle, one a resident of the City of LaSalle or between said city and the City of Peoria, and one a resident of the City of Peoria or between said city and the mouth of the Illinois River, to inspect the work. The commissioners shall, within 10 days after such appointment, meet at the City of Chicago, appoint a competent civil engineer and employ other assistance as they consider necessary to perform their duties. The commissioners shall take as their datum line for the survey the datum established by the Illinois and Michigan Canal Trustees in 1847, and shall make such examination and surveys of Chicago River and of the channel or channels authorized by this Act to determine whether the channel is of the character and capacity required by this Act. On finding that the work complies with Section 23 of this Act, the commissioners shall so certify to the Governor, who shall thereupon authorize the water and sewage to be let into the channel. But in case the commissioners shall find said channel is not constructed in accordance with this Act, they shall file in the circuit court in their name as commissioners, a complaint against the corporation, which complaint shall describe how the work is deficient and how it fails to comply with this Act. On receipt of the complaint, the court shall issue an injunction without bond against the defendant, enjoining it from admitting water or sewage into the channel until the final order of the court. In case the court, upon hearing, determines that the channel is not constructed in accordance with this Act, the injunction shall continue until this Act is fully complied with.
    The commissioners and engineer shall receive for their services $10 per day each, and their reasonable expenses and outlays for the time by them necessarily employed in the discharge of their duties. Such compensation shall be paid to them from the State Treasury. The sanitary district shall reimburse the State for all expenses and disbursements on account of the commission.
    If any channel is constructed under this Act which shall discharge the sewage of a population of more than 300,000 into or through any river beyond or without the limits of the district constructing it, the channel shall be constructed in accordance with Section 23 of this Act, and if any such channel receives its supply of water from any river or channel connected with Lake Michigan it is considered as receiving its supply of water from Lake Michigan.

    Sec. 28. Any territory within the sanitary district may be disconnected therefrom if the territory sought to be disconnected, (1) is upon the border, but within the boundary of the sanitary district, (2) contains 20 or more acres, (3) if disconnected will not result in the isolation of any part of the sanitary district from the remainder of the sanitary district, and (4) if the sanitary district has not extended sewerage or drainage facilities to such territory or has not provided sewage treatment plant facilities for the area in the following manner:
    A written petition directed to the circuit court of the county in which the territory proposed to be disconnected is located and if such territory is located in more than one county then to the circuit court of the county in which the greater part of such territory may be located, which petition shall be signed by a majority of the electors, if any, residing within the territory and also signed by a majority of the owners of record of land in such territory, and also representing a majority of the area of land in such territory, shall be filed with the clerk of the court. The petition shall set forth the description of the territory to be detached from the sanitary district, shall allege the pertinent facts in support of the disconnection of such territory and shall pray that the court detach the territory from the sanitary district.
    Upon the filing of the petition, the court shall set the same for public hearing which date of public hearing shall be within 30 days of the date of the filing of the petition, and the court shall give at least 10 days notice of such hearing by publishing notice thereof once in a newspaper having a general circulation within the sanitary district the date of such publication to be not less than 10 days prior to the date set for the public hearing. The notice shall refer to the petition filed with the court, shall describe the territory proposed to be disconnected, shall indicate the prayer of the petition and the date, time and place at which the public hearing will be held and shall further indicate that the sanitary district and any person residing in or owning property in the territory or in the sanitary district from which such territory is sought to be disconnected shall have an opportunity to be heard on the prayer of the petition. Notice of the filing of the petition, the substance of which shall be as hereinabove prescribed for the published notice shall also be mailed to the president of the board of trustees of the sanitary district.
    The public hearing may be continued from time to time by the court. After such public hearing and having heard all persons desiring to be heard who reside in or own property in the territory involved or in the sanitary district from which such territory is sought to be disconnected, including the sanitary district, if the court finds that the allegations of the petition are true, the court shall grant the prayer of the petition and shall enter an order disconnecting the territory from the sanitary district, which order shall be filed of record and the clerk of the court shall cause to be delivered a certified copy of such order to the clerk of the sanitary district from which such territory has been detached and to the county clerk. If the court finds that the allegations contained in the petition are not true then the court shall enter an order dismissing the same.
    However, the disconnection of any territory from the sanitary district shall not exempt such territory from taxation for the purpose of paying any indebtedness incurred by the corporate authorities of the sanitary district prior to the time of filing of the petition for disconnection and during the time that such territory was a part of the sanitary district which is payable from general property taxes income. Such territory shall be assessed and taxed to pay such indebtedness until such indebtedness is completely paid, the same as though the territory had not been disconnected.

    Sec. 88. Drainage; navigation; special assessments.
    (a) The board of trustees of said sanitary district shall have the right to provide for the drainage of the additional territory added to said sanitary district by Section 86 by laying out, establishing, constructing and maintaining one or more channels, drains, ditches and outlets for carrying off and disposing of the drainage (including the sewage) of such district, together with such adjuncts and additions thereto as may be necessary or proper to cause such channels or outlets to accomplish the end for which they are designed in a satisfactory manner and shall have the right to use what is known as the "Calumet feeder" of the Illinois and Michigan Canal and lands adjacent to such feeder belonging to the State of Illinois for the site of any such channel, within the limits of the county in which such district is situated, in such manner as said district may elect, and shall also have the right to construct a channel across said Illinois and Michigan Canal, without being required to restore said Illinois and Michigan Canal or said feeder to its former usefulness. If, by reason of said abandonment, a stagnant stream or pool of water shall remain upon the deposits of Chicago sewage, accumulated in said Illinois and Michigan Canal by reason of its years of usefulness by the City of Chicago as a sewage outlet, said sanitary district shall fill up said canal to a depth sufficient to remove said condition and prevent the spread of pestilence and disease throughout the territory in which said Illinois and Michigan Canal is abandoned; and the other powers and jurisdictions of said sanitary district of Chicago over and in connection with such added territory shall be the same as that vested in it over the territory included within the limits of said sanitary district as originally organized. Before said Calumet channel is connected with the present main sanitary channel, gates of suitable pattern for shutting off the flow of water into said Calumet channel shall be installed at or near the connection of said Calumet channel with the Calumet river and forever maintained for use in case of an emergency, and for the protection of the property and lives of residents of the Illinois valley, and shall maintain the same proportion of dilution of sewage through such auxiliary channels as it may construct and join to its main channel as is now required by the act creating said sanitary district: Provided, however, that before any such channel is constructed across said Illinois and Michigan Canal, or the navigation of said canal in any manner interfered with, said sanitary district of Chicago shall connect its present main channel from the controlling works at Lockport with the upper basin of the Illinois and Michigan Canal at Joliet by a channel of a depth of not less than ten (10) feet and a width of not less than one hundred and sixty (160) feet through its entire length, in which channel so to be constructed, said sanitary district shall provide and construct a lock or locks of the size of at least twenty-two (22) feet in width by one hundred and thirty (130) feet in length between mitre sills, connecting upper and lower levels, and provide suitable protection for water craft in using said locks and channel. Said locks shall be constructed of the most approved pattern of their size, and be perfectly safe for use and be equipped with machinery to operate the same; and if only one lock is constructed it shall be provided with double gates to prevent accident, and said sanitary district shall forever maintain and operate the same: Provided, further, that said sanitary district shall furnish and provide at said lock a site of the dimensions of at least twenty by thirty feet upon which the state through the Canal Commissioners shall have the right to erect a suitable office building and keep an agent therein, and the Canal Commissioners shall have such authority in and about said lock as is necessary to enforce the rules and regulations prescribed by them pertaining to and governing navigation on the Illinois and Michigan Canal: Provided, further, that said sanitary district shall furnish, free of all expense, for the perpetual use of the Canal Commissioners, at some point in the Township of Lockport to be agreed upon by the Canal Commissioners and the sanitary district trustees, a strip or parcel of land bordering upon said sanitary channel, eight hundred (800) feet in length and one hundred and thirty (130) feet in width, filling the same to a suitable depth to provide suitable roadways for approaches, whereon may be located, constructed and operated, docks, shops, barns and other buildings controlled by the Canal Commissioners and used in connection with the operation of the Illinois and Michigan Canal.
    (b) Said sanitary district shall permit all water craft navigating or proposing to navigate said Illinois and Michigan Canal to navigate the water of all said channels of said sanitary district promptly, without delay and without payment of any tolls or lockage charges for so navigating in said channels. The rules of the United States government now in force, regulating navigation on the Chicago river shall govern navigation on the channels of said sanitary district of Chicago: Provided, however, that the speed of all vessels while passing through the earth sections shall not exceed eight (8) miles per hour.
    (c) Said sanitary district of Chicago shall have no power to levy and collect any special assessment or special tax upon any part of said added territory to defray or pay any part of the cost, either of the work heretofore done by said sanitary district or any main channel hereafter to be constructed in said added territory.
    (d) That the said sanitary district of Chicago is hereby authorized to construct all such dams, waterwheels and other works north of the upper basin of the Illinois and Michigan Canal as may be necessary or appropriate to develop and render available the power arising from the water passing through its main channel and any auxiliary channels now or hereafter constructed by said district.
    (e) That the power made available by the works constructed under the provisions of this act shall be converted into electrical energy and shall be transmitted to the various cities, villages and towns within said sanitary district or adjacent to the main channel of said sanitary district and may be used in the lighting of said cities, villages and towns, or parts thereof, or for the operation of pumping plants or machinery used for municipal purposes or for public service, or may be disposed of to any other person or corporation, upon such terms and conditions as may be agreed to by the said sanitary district: Provided, however, that it shall be the duty of said sanitary district to utilize so much of said power as may be required for that purpose to operate the pumping stations, bridges and other machinery of said sanitary district.
    (f) For the purpose of meeting the expenditures arising from the exercise of the powers conferred by sections five and six of this act upon the said sanitary district, the said sanitary district of Chicago is hereby authorized to levy and collect in each year, for a period of three years (in addition to the taxes which said district is now by law authorized to levy and collect) a tax of not exceeding .0625 per cent of the full, fair cash value, as equalized or assessed by the Department of Revenue, of the taxable property within the corporate limits of said district for the year in which the levy is made. The county clerk, in extending said .0625 per cent tax upon the taxable property within said sanitary district, shall not in any event reduce the same, but in that respect said .0625 per cent shall not be subject to the provisions of the Property Tax Code.
    (g) The said sanitary district shall, at the expense of said district, in all respects comply with the provisions of the acts of Congress of March 22, 1822, and March 2, 1827, as construed by the courts of last resort of the State of Illinois and of the United States, in relation to the Illinois and Michigan Canal, so far as it affects that portion of the Illinois and Michigan Canal vacated or abandoned by the terms of this Act.
