Storm Sewer Separation Project
The Village of Maywood has been working with Cook County, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) for many years to address flooding and combined sewer basement backups. The Village currently relies on combined sewers that collect rainwater runoff, sewage and wastewater in the same pipes. When the area experiences heavy rains, combined sewers quickly reach their capacity and become overwhelmed, which can result in basement flooding.
