Water Wells - Developer
Designing a residential subdivision for unincorporated Kendall County, out of reach of public water and sewer, requires special considerations and careful planning in the areas of onsite wastewater treatment and disposal, and onsite potable water supply. The developer will need to demonstrate to the health department in the early stages of planning, that each and every lot in a proposed subdivision will be able to be furnished with these fundamental yet essential living requirements. The health department, in accordance with Illinois' Plat Act (765 ILCS/205), is charged with requiring that such assurances are received.
The following information has been compiled with the residential developer in mind.
