Combined Sewer System (CSO): Public Notification Plan

As part of its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) permit renewal requirements, the City of Blue Island has prepared the following required plans:


  • CSO Operation and Maintenance Plan
  • CSO Pollution Prevention Plan
  • CSO Public Notification Plan
