A majority of the nearly $20 million in planned improvements to the water and wastewater systems in Roselle are either currently underway or were recently completed. Annual increases in the water, sewer and capital improvement surcharge (CIS) rates, which most recently went up on January 1, are directly tied to these system improvements and are part of a five-year rate structure established by the Village Board in 2016.  

Following the completion of the Village's Wastewater Facilities Master Plan in 2015 and a Water and Sewer Rate Study in 2016, the Village developed a five-year Capital Improvements Plan reflecting the priority needs in both the Wastewater and Water Divisions. The Wastewater Facilities Master Plan identified over $18.9 million in needed improvements to the wastewater collection system. 

The Village secured a $17.3 million low-interest loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to help finance the wastewater facilities projects over the five years. This funding is combined with Village Board-approved annual increases in the sewer and CIS rates to fund the projects. Information about the specific wastewater system and water system projects is available on the Village's website.
