The sewer system in the Village of Crete is divided into 2 different systems. One is our sanitary sewer, which comes out of homes and businesses to carry waste away and the other being storm water which mainly comes from rain and snow melt.

In the case of sanitary sewer blockage, back-ups, or other sewage issues, please contact our Sewer Department:

  • Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 3 p.m
  • 708-672-7100
  • After hours at
  • 708-672-0911

Some cities have a combined sanitary and storm sewer system. In a combined system both waste water and storm water would need to be treated, resulting in increased costs.
