Braceville to Receive $4M Grant from Illinois EPA for Low-Pressure Sewer Collection System


Share post:

BRACEVILLE, Ill. – The Village of Braceville is set to receive $4 million from a $21 million grant issued by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The funding will be used to install a low-pressure sanitary sewer collection system that will transport wastewater from Braceville to a treatment plant in Diamond.

According to Braceville officials, the new system will allow residents to abandon their septic tanks, which currently serve approximately 300 homes in the village. The new collection system is expected to improve sanitation in the area and reduce the risk of groundwater contamination.

The project is still in its early stages, and officials have not yet provided a timeline for when the installation will begin or when residents can expect to switch from their septic tanks to the new system. However, the new infrastructure is expected to bring long-term benefits to the residents of Braceville and improve the quality of life in the village.
