Utility Information

Sanitary Sewer
Village of Bourbonnais
600 Main Street 
Bourbonnais, IL 

New residents need to call the Village at (815)933-1676 to arrange for sewer bills. Sewer bills are mailed monthly to the more than 6,000 customers in the system. 

Residential rates are as follows:

Sewer Rates

The Village of Bourbonnais will raise rates for our customers January 1, 2012. Our overall rate increase of $610,000 per year is related to the capital improvements completed and additional capital improvements committed over the next two years, as well as the escalated cost to process the waste at KRMA.  The new rates will appear on the February billing. The capital spending is necessary to maintain and upgrade our infrastructure to protect our environment and provide quality service to our customers.

An example of the charges to a typical customer’s monthly sewer bill is broken down below:

Single Family Home: $26.75
Multi-Family Unit: $26.75
Mobile Home: $26.75
Non-Annexed: $28.35

This increase is the first rate increase since January 1997. We are cognizant of the current economic times and have successful cut costs to absorb increased expenses over the past 15 years but must adjust our rates to address needed infrastructure and the reality of the escalating cost of operating the system.

The Village’s mission is to provide quality service in an environmentally safe manor at an affordable rate. 

Commercial and industrial rates are based on water flow, and are billed on a monthly basis. Commercial and industrial users should contact the Sewer Billing Offices (815.933.1676) for information as to their respective bills.

Direct Debit Program Never worry about forgetting to pay your sewer bill again! 

The Village is now offering automatic direct debit for paying your sewer bills. Click here to download the printable ACH to sign up. Once you complete the application, mail to: Sewer Village of Bourbonnais Sewer Billing Department, 600 Main Street, Bourbonnais, IL or bring in to the Village’s Administrative Office.
