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.

DIVISION 141. SEWERAGE SYSTEMS AND ABATEMENT
OF POLLUTION FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTES

65 ILCS 5/11-141-1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-1) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-1)
    Sec. 11-141-1. When used in this Division 141, "sewerage system" means and includes any or all of the following: a sewage treatment plant or plants, collecting, intercepting and outlet sewers, force mains, conduits, lateral sewers and extensions, pumping stations, ejector stations, and all other appurtenances, extensions or improvements necessary or useful and convenient for the collection, treatment, and disposal, in a sanitary manner, of sewage and industrial wastes. The term also includes the disconnection of storm water drains and constructing outlets therefor, where, in any case, such work is necessary to relieve existing sanitary sewers of storm water loads, in order to permit the efficient operation of such sanitary sewers for collection, treatment, and disposal of sewage and industrial wastes.
(Source: Laws 1961, p. 576.)

65 ILCS 5/11-141-2

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-2) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-2)
    Sec. 11-141-2. Every municipality may construct or acquire, and may improve, extend, and operate a sewerage system either within or without the corporate limits thereof. Every municipality also may, when determined by its corporate authorities to be in the public interest and necessary for the protection of the public health, enter into and perform contracts, whether long-term or short-term, with any industrial establishment for the provision and operation by the municipality of sewerage facilities to abate or reduce the pollution of waters caused by discharges of industrial wastes by the industrial establishment and the payment periodically by the industrial establishment to the municipality of amounts at least sufficient, in the determination of such corporate authorities, to compensate the municipality for the cost of providing (including payment of principal and interest charges, if any), and of operating and maintaining the sewerage facilities serving such industrial establishment.
    Every municipality may borrow money from the United States Government or any agency thereof, or from any other source, for the purpose of improving or extending or for the purpose of constructing or acquiring and improving and extending a sewerage system and, as evidence thereof, may issue its revenue bonds, payable solely from the revenue derived from the operation of the sewerage system by that municipality. These bonds may be issued with maturities not exceeding 40 years from the date of the bonds, and in such amounts as may be necessary to provide sufficient funds to pay all the costs of the improvement or extension or construction or acquisition and improvement and extension of the sewerage system, including engineering, legal, and other expenses, together with interest, to a date 6 months subsequent to the estimated date of completion. These bonds shall bear interest at a rate of not more than the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable semi-annually, may be made registerable as to principal, and may be made callable on any interest payment date at a price of par and accrued interest under such terms and conditions as may be fixed by the ordinance authorizing the issuance of the bonds. Bonds issued under this Division 141 are negotiable instruments. They shall be executed by the mayor or president of the municipality and by the municipal clerk and shall be sealed with the corporate seal of the municipality. In case any officer whose signature appears on the bonds or coupons ceases to hold that office before the bonds are delivered, his signature, nevertheless, shall be valid and sufficient for all purposes, the same as though he had remained in office until the bonds were delivered. The bonds shall be sold in such manner and upon such terms as the corporate authorities shall determine, except that the selling price shall be such that the interest cost to the municipality of the proceeds of the bonds shall not exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, payable semi-annually, computed to maturity according to the standard table of bond values.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
    The amendatory Acts of 1971, 1972 and 1973 are not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.
(Source: P.A. 86-4.)

65 ILCS 5/11-141-3

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-3) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-3)
    Sec. 11-141-3. Whenever the corporate authorities of a municipality determine to improve or extend or to construct or acquire and improve and extend a sewerage system and to issue bonds, under this Division 141, for the payment of the cost thereof, the corporate authorities shall adopt an ordinance describing, in a general way, the contemplated project. It is not necessary that the ordinance refer to plans and specifications nor that there be on file for public inspection prior to the adoption of such ordinance detailed plans and specifications of the project.
    Whenever a municipality has been directed by an order issued under "An Act to establish a Sanitary Water Board and to control, prevent and abate pollution of the streams, lakes, ponds and other surface and underground waters in the State, and to repeal an Act named therein", approved July 12, 1951, as now or hereafter amended, or the "Environmental Protection Act", enacted by the 76th General Assembly, to abate its discharge of untreated or inadequately treated sewage, this fact shall be set out in the ordinance, unless the order to abate the discharge has been reversed on appeal.
    The ordinance shall set out the estimated cost of the project, determine the period of usefulness thereof, and fix the amount of revenue bonds proposed to be issued, the maturity or maturities, the interest rate, which shall not exceed the maximum rate authorized by the Bond Authorization Act, as amended at the time of the making of the contract, and all the details in connection with the bonds. The ordinance may contain such covenants and restrictions upon the issuance of additional revenue bonds thereafter, which will share equally the revenue of the sewerage system, as may be deemed necessary or advisable for the assurance of the payment of the bonds first issued. Any municipality may also provide in the ordinance authorizing the issuance of bonds under this Division 141 that the bonds, or such ones thereof as may be specified, shall, to the extent and in the manner prescribed, be subordinated and be junior in standing, with respect to the payment of principal and interest and the security thereof, to such other bonds as are designated in the ordinance.
    The ordinance shall pledge the revenue derived from the operation of the sewerage system for the purpose of paying the cost of operation and maintenance of the system, providing an adequate depreciation fund, and paying the principal and interest on the bonds of the municipality issued under this Division 141.
    This amendatory Act (Public Act 76-1983) applies to bonds which are authorized but not sold on its effective date.
    With respect to instruments for the payment of money issued under this Section either before, on, or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1989, it is and always has been the intention of the General Assembly (i) that the Omnibus Bond Acts are and always have been supplementary grants of power to issue instruments in accordance with the Omnibus Bond Acts, regardless of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts, (ii) that the provisions of this Section are not a limitation on the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts, and (iii) that instruments issued under this Section within the supplementary authority granted by the Omnibus Bond Acts are not invalid because of any provision of this Act that may appear to be or to have been more restrictive than those Acts.
    The amendatory Acts of 1971, 1972 and 1973 are not a limit upon any municipality which is a home rule unit.

65 ILCS 5/11-141-4

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-4) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-4)
    Sec. 11-141-4. Within 10 days after this ordinance has been passed, it shall be published at least once in one or more newspapers published in the municipality, or, if no newspaper is published therein, then in one or more newspapers with a general circulation within the municipality. In municipalities with less than 500 population in which no newspaper is published, publication may instead be made by posting a notice in 3 prominent places within the municipality.
    If the ordinance specifies that the municipality has been directed by an order issued under the provisions of "An Act to establish a Sanitary Water Board and to control, prevent and abate pollution of the streams, lakes, ponds and other surface and underground waters in the State, and to repeal an Act named therein", approved July 12, 1951, as heretofore and hereafter amended, and the Environmental Protection Act, to abate its discharge of untreated or inadequately treated sewage, the ordinance authorizing the issuance of those revenue bonds shall be in effect immediately upon its adoption and publication, or posting, as provided in this section, notwithstanding any provision in this Code or any other law to the contrary.
    In all other cases, if no petition is filed with the municipal clerk as hereinafter provided in this section, within 30 days after the publication or posting of the ordinance, the ordinance shall be in effect after the expiration of that 30 day period. In such cases the publication or posting of the ordinance shall be accompanied by a notice of (1) the specific number of voters required to sign a petition requesting the question of improving or extending or of construction or acquiring and improving and extending a sewerage system and of issuing revenue bonds to be submitted to the electors; (2) the time in which such petition must be filed; and (3) the date of the prospective referendum. The municipal clerk shall provide a petition form to any individual requesting one. But if within that 30 day period a petition is filed with the municipal clerk signed by electors of the municipality numbering 10% or more of the number of registered voters in the municipality, asking that the question of improving or extending or of construction or acquiring and improving and extending a sewerage system and of issuing revenue bonds to pay the cost thereof be submitted to the electors of the municipality, the municipal clerk of the municipality shall certify the question for submission at an election.
    If a majority of the electors voting upon the question voted in favor thereof, the ordinance shall be in effect, but if a majority of the electors voting upon the questions are not in favor thereof, the ordinance shall not take effect.

65 ILCS 5/11-141-5

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-5) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-5)
    Sec. 11-141-5. All bonds issued under this Division 141 are payable solely from the revenue derived from the operation of the sewerage system; provided, that bonds issued under this Division 141 may also be payable from funds pledged by the municipality issuing such bonds pursuant to the Illinois Finance Authority Act. Notwithstanding any such pledge or any other matter, these bonds shall not, in any event, constitute an indebtedness of the municipality within the meaning of any constitutional or statutory limitation. It shall be plainly stated on the face of each bond that the bond has been issued under this Division 141 and that it does not constitute an indebtedness of the municipality within any constitutional or statutory limitation.

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-6) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-6)
    Sec. 11-141-6. So long as any revenue bonds of the municipality under the provisions of this Division 141 are outstanding, all revenue derived from the operation of such a sewerage system shall be set aside as collected, and deposited in a special fund of the municipality, and this revenue shall be used only for the purpose of paying the cost of operating and maintaining the sewerage system, providing an adequate depreciation fund, and paying the principal of and interest on the bonds issued by the municipality under the provisions of this Division 141. When no such revenue bonds are outstanding, such revenue shall be used for the purpose of paying the principal of and interest on any other bonds or indebtedness issued or incurred by the municipality for the construction, acquisition, improvement, extension, operation or improvement of the sewerage system, or for paying for the construction, acquisition, improvement, extension, operation or improvement of the sewerage system.
(Source: Laws 1961, p. 576.)

65 ILCS 5/11-141-7

    (65 ILCS 5/11-141-7) (from Ch. 24, par. 11-141-7)
    Sec. 11-141-7. Powers. The corporate authorities of any municipality that owns and operates or that may hereafter own and operate a sewerage system constructed or acquired under the provisions of any law of this state may make, enact, and enforce all needful rules, regulations, and ordinances for the improvement, care, and protection of its sewerage system and any other sewer or sewerage system, located outside the corporate boundary of the municipality and not owned by it, that directly or indirectly connects with the municipality's sewerage system, which may be conducive to the preservation of the public health, comfort, and convenience, and may render the sewage carried in the sewerage system of the municipality harmless in so far as it is reasonably possible to do so.
    The corporate authorities of such a municipality may, by ordinance, charge the inhabitants thereof for the use and service of its sewerage system whether by direct or indirect connection therewith within or without the corporate boundary, and to establish charges or rates for that purpose. The corporate authorities of such a municipality may by ordinance charge the users thereof, whether they be inside of or outside of the municipality, for the use and service of its sewerage system whether by direct or indirect connection therewith, within or without the corporate boundary, and may establish charges or rates for that purpose, provided however that where such users are residents of another municipality with whom there is a contract for use and service of the sewerage system, then such charges or rates shall be made in accordance with the terms of the contract, either directly to the users or to the contracting municipality as may be provided by the provisions of the contract. In making such rates and charges the municipality may provide for a rate to the outside users in excess of the rate fixed for the inhabitants of said municipality as may be reasonable. Where bonds are issued as provided in Sections 11-141-2 and 11-141-3, the corporate authorities shall establish rates or charges as provided in this section, and these charges or rates shall be sufficient at all times to pay the cost of operation and maintenance, to provide an adequate depreciation fund, and to pay the principal of and interest upon all revenue bonds issued under Sections 11-141-2 and 11-141-3.
    A depreciation fund is a fund for such replacements as may be necessary from time to time for the continued effective and efficient operation of the system. The depreciation fund shall not be allowed to accumulate beyond a reasonable amount necessary for that purpose, and shall not be used for extensions to the system.
    Charges or rates shall be established, revised, and maintained by ordinance and become payable as the corporate authorities may determine by ordinance.
    Such charges or rates are liens upon the real estate upon or for which sewerage service is supplied whenever the charges or rates become delinquent as provided by the ordinance of the municipality fixing a delinquency date. A lien is created under the preceding sentence only if the municipality sends to the owner or owners of record, as referenced by the taxpayer's identification number, of the real estate (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. However, the municipality has no preference over the rights of any purchaser, mortgagee, judgment creditor, or other lien holder arising prior to the filing of the notice of such a lien in the office of the recorder of the county in which such 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. This notice shall consist of a sworn statement setting out (1) a description of such real estate sufficient for the identification thereof, (2) the amount of money due for such sewerage service, and (3) the date when such amount became delinquent. The municipality 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 municipality has the power to foreclose this lien in the same manner and with the same effect as in the foreclosure of mortgages on real estate.
    Except in counties with a population of more than 250,000 where the majority of the municipal sewerage system users are located outside of the municipality's corporate limits, the payment of delinquent charges for sewerage service to any premises may be enforced by discontinuing either the water service or the sewerage service to that premises, or both. A rate or charge is delinquent if it is more than 30 days overdue. Any public or municipal corporation or political subdivision of the State furnishing water service to a premises (i) shall discontinue that service upon receiving written notice from the municipality providing sewerage service that payment of the rate or charge for sewerage service to the premises has become delinquent and (ii) shall not resume water service until receiving a similar notice that the delinquency has been removed. The provider of sewerage service shall not request discontinuation of water service before sending a notice of the delinquency to the sewer user and affording the user an opportunity to be heard. An investor-owned public utility providing water service within a municipality that provides sewerage service may contract with the municipality to discontinue water service to a premises with respect to which the payment of a rate or charge for sewerage service has become delinquent. The municipality shall reimburse the privately owned public utility, public or municipal corporation, or political subdivision of the State for the reasonable cost of the discontinuance and the resumption of water service, any lost water service revenues, and the costs of discontinuing water service. The municipality shall indemnify the privately owned public utility, public or municipal corporation, or political subdivision of the State for any judgment and related attorney's fees resulting from an action based on any provision of this paragraph.
    The municipality also has the power, from time to time, to sue the occupant or user of that real estate in a civil action to recover money due for sewerage services, plus a reasonable attorney's fee, to be fixed by the court. However, whenever a judgment is entered in such a civil action, the foregoing provisions in 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 the 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.

    Sec. 11-141-8. Every municipality which issues bonds under this Division 141 shall install and maintain a proper system of accounts showing the amount of revenue received from the sewerage system and the application of that revenue.

    (a) If a municipality annexes part or all of the territory in which a township operates a sewerage system that includes a sewage treatment plant or plants, and if the corporate authorities of the municipality do not operate a sewerage system that includes a sewage treatment plant or plants, the township shall be responsible for that portion of the sewerage system within the annexed territory. Any user fees attributable to the annexed territory shall remain with the township, unless, by agreement, the township assigns those fees.
    (b) If a municipality annexes part or all of the territory in which a township operates a sewerage system that does not include a sewage treatment plant or plants, the authority responsible for operating the sewerage system within the annexed territory shall assume responsibility for that portion of the sewerage system within the annexed territory.

The corporate authorities of any municipality shall not restrain or interfere with an adjacent municipality's construction, maintenance, alteration, or extension of a sewerage system that accesses intercepting and outlet sewers of a third consenting wastewater treatment authority outside of the adjacent municipality's corporate boundaries provided that the construction, maintenance, alteration, or extension is an appropriate or practical route, according to any Environmental Protection Agency engineer, and is necessary to maintain or establish compliance with the Environmental Protection Act or rules or regulations promulgated by the Pollution Control Board.
    Any municipality granting access to intercepting and outlet sewers of a third consenting wastewater treatment authority may recover only its actual costs, including but not limited to inspection, regulation, administration, and repair costs, associated with any construction, maintenance, extension, or alteration of the existing system.
