The Village of Deerfield's Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), located at 1045 Hackberry Road, is conducting biosolids hauling operations today and continuing through the weekend.
Due to wet weather conditions, the Village has been unable to complete hauling operations on its normal schedule. While we make every effort to avoid disruption to residents on weekends, this 2-3 day haul has been authorized due to extenuating circumstances.
There will be additional truck traffic and an increase in odors from the facility. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to accomplish this necessary action with as little impact to residents as possible. This work is weather dependent and subject to change.
The Water Reclamation Facility treats and processes all sewage from the Village of Deerfield, as well as sewage from a section of the Village of Bannockburn and a small portion from the City of Highland Park. Biosolids are a non-toxic, organic material - they are transferred from Deerfield to area farms to use for crops.
For questions or concerns, contact the WRF at 847.317.7224.
