South Lyons Township Sanitary District History


South Lyons Township Sanitary District was first named
Countryside Sanitary District. After the City’s incorporation in 1960,
the name was changed to the South Lyons Township Sanitary
District to avoid public confusion between the sanitary district and
the City. The district was formed as a result of a 1959 special
election. The district  boundaries are north starting at 50th Street
in La Grange, to the south 67th Street,  to the west Brainard, and to
the east East Avenue,

The District is governed by a three-member Board of Trustees
elected by the voters within our district. The Board meets once a
month, generally on the third Thursday of each month at 4:30 PM in
the District's offices located in Countryside. Board meetings are
open to the public.

The District is a taxing body. Though most of the revenue for
operations is generated from user charges, based on previous
year's water consumption. A small portion of the District's revenue
comes from permit fees.

The District has about 20 miles of sewer lines, 1,600 manholes, and
2 lift stations.  We service approximately 1221 Residential, 40
Industrial, and 214 Commercial properties. Relative to age, about
80% of the lines are less than 15 years old, and 20% of the lines are
more than 20 years old.
