Sanitary System Technology Improvements

The well-rounded village board member must learn about and understand operational things that  professionals spend years studying. Recently the village board approved plans for an automatic raking bar screen for removal of solids at the Winfield Main station. We might not even know about the operation of things like this were it not for the engineers and public works staff keeping on top regular maintenance.

Rather than traditional grinding this advanced technology removes large solids such as trash from the waste stream, reducing problems at later stages of the process. Lucky for us.

This is another of the many issues that a village board member faces and has to make sound decisions upon. Luckily, they do this job so we don’t have to.
