Meter Reading System Update

To all our valued Water and Sewer customers in the City of Benton:

The City of Benton is in the middle of the process of changing out the meter reading system. This has resulted in some routes being estimated and some routes have more days than usual on their bill. This will be solved once all of the meters have been changed.

With any change, issues pop up. We currently are having some issues between the reading system and the billing system on a few accounts, as some of our customers have unfortunately experienced. PLEASE DO NOT PANIC! Please give us a call and let us know if you have any issues and we will work through them together.

Our Billing Clerk is working diligently to get the issues resolved as quick as possible. The City of Benton appreciates our customers and your understanding during this time of transition from our old system to the new. We believe this is going to be a positive move for the citizens as well as the city.

Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.

Control State Revolving Fund (SRF) Financing of the WWTP

wwtp-ground-breaking
*The City of Benton broke ground on their new Waste Water Treatment Facility on December 15, 2016. The plant is set to be complete in 2018.

Construction of the replacement of the Benton WWTF is financed by the Water pollution Control 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 construction of a new wastewater treatment facility which includes a headworks with grit removal, an oxidation ditch, 2 clarifiers, UV disinfection, a sludge pump station, sludge digester, sludge handling facilities and lab building. Once complete, it will improve water quality in the environment for area residents and businesses in Benton by improving the discharge quality from the wastewater treatment facility. 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.

LIFTED BOIL ORDERS!

ALL BOIL ORDERS FOR THE CITY OF BENTON HAVE BEEN LIFTED! The City of Benton wants to thank its citizens for their patience and understanding during this time. There are no boil orders for the City of Benton at this time. Thank you again!
