A sanitary sewer overflow has occurred at the Village of Belgium’s Wastewater Treatment Facility, 701 W Silver Beach Road. The overflow occurred at approximately 12:00 am on October 1rst, until 3:00 am, October 2, 2019.
A high amount of inflow was experienced due to an excessive amount of rainfall and the ground already being saturated. This was not a mechanical failure. The Village of Belgium Public Works personnel have responded to the incident, and have contained the overflow to the treatment plant to limit harm to the public and the environment. If you have a sump pump, make sure it is discharging outside and not into the sanitary sewer system. All necessary steps are being taken to limit any public health hazard or potentially harmful effects on the environment.
