Effective Date: October 4, 2010
The City of St. Charles offers financial assistance to residents that may experience flooding problems inside a home due to either sanitary sewer back up or storm water leaking in. The City Homeowner Sewer Assistance Program will reimburse property owners fifty percent (50%) of total project cost with a maximum contribution amount of $3,500.00. The City has a limited dollar amount in the City budget for this program, therefore eligibility is on a first come first serve basis.
Examples of eligible projects for sanitary sewer back ups are; installation of overhead sewers, stand pipes or backflow prevention devices. Storm water projects examples may be; foundation water proofing, re-grading for improved drainage, drain tile and foundation wall repairs, private storm sewer repairs.
