Welcome to the Village of Beecher
THE VILLAGE IS CREATING A PLAN FOR THE FUTURE!
The Village is creating a 2040 comprehensive planning process which will examine existing conditions, future goals, and needs as they relate to economic development and jobs, transportation and infrastructure, social and cultural vibrancy, and community cohesion. Recommendations for the future will be based on market data, detailed analysis, and driven by community input.
A website has been created by Teska Associates who is conducting this planning process and will be updated as project materials, including draft documents, meeting highlights, and presentations, are created. Keep an eye out for a survey and upcoming public meetings to provide input on the plan.

VILLAGE BEGINS WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT IMPROVEMENTS
Construction of The Village of Beecher, Illinois, 2017 Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements at the Wastewater Treatment Plant serving the Village of Beecher, were financed by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF). The SRF program is administered by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and Receives a portion of its money to fund these types of projects from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
This project includes rehabilitation of existing structures for screening, biological treatment, clarification, digestion, and non-potable water supply; as well as additional clarification, a new UV disinfection system, sludge dewatering system, and chemical feed equipment. Once complete, it will improve water quality for area residents and businesses in the Village of Beecher by additional nutrient removal, reduction in potable water use, production of higher-quality and lower volume of sludge, and a more efficient operational system. SRF programs operate in each state to provide communities the resources necessary to build, maintain, and improve the infrastructure that protects one of our most valuable resources: water.
