Sanitary Sewer

The Village's four-cell sewer system is one of the first environmentally friendly, non-chemical systems in North America. The site operates on biological purification, relying on a variety of plant species within the cells, and filtering into adjacent wetlands and tree lots to completely purify the waste.
