Center Street Sewer Project

Construction of the Center Street Sewer Separation Project improvements to the City of Streator sewer system were financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This project includes the installation of a new sanitary sewer along Center Street and new storm sewers along 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th Streets.  Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in Streator by completely separating the combined sewer system in the area and eliminating one of the City’s Combined Sewer Overflows (CSO) and decreasing the potential for operation of two additional CSOs.  SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
