THORN CREEK BASIN SANITARY DISTRICT

Providing Wastewater Disposal Services
Since 1928 for Chicago Heights and
the South Suburbs

The Thorn Creek Basin Sanitary District is a municipal government that acts as the sole wastewater treatment agency for more than 100,000 people.  Organized in 1928 under Illinois state statutes, the Thorn Creek Basin Sanitary District provides wastewater treatment service for the communities of Chicago Heights, Homewood, Park Forest, South Chicago Heights, Steger and Crete.  The Sanitary District is governed by a board of trustees that is appointed by the elected legislative representatives of the communities served by the Sanitary District.  Thanks to sound planning, efficient operations, modern technology and a large-scale operation, Thorn Creek Basin's charges for services are among the lowest found in Illinois, and the District's quality of effluent surpasses Environmental Protection Agency standards by a wide margin.

The discharge of all toxic substances to the sewer system is prohibited.  To report a spill or suspicious activity, call (708) 754-0525  Extension 49.
