Illinois pollution control agencies have imposed bans on new sewer connections in several parts of the State. The result has been the stimulation of local efforts to plan, build, and overhaul badly overloaded facilities. Many of the bans imposed because of inadequate capacity have now been lifted, in whole or in part, as a result of responsible and effective local action. In a variety of settings, the strategy of sewer connection bans has been challenged. The Institute undertook this modest study to determine, in a general way, whether sewer connection bans provide public benefits. The conclusion to be drawn from this work is that such bans are effective water pollution control strategies.
