Construction of the Streator Sewer Capacity Upgrade and Prafke Addition Sewer Projects 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. These projects include the construction of a storm water detention pond north of the Prafke subdivision along Shabbona Street with a storm sewer outfall along Shabbona Street to the entrance of Marilla Park. In addition, manhole reconstruction and sewer lining will take place within the subdivision as well as along the Prairie Creek Interceptor sewer, along S. Vermilion Street, and along River Avenue. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the City. These benefits will be decreased potential for combined sewer overflows (CSOs) to the local receiving waters and decreased potential for basement sewer backups. 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.
