County Appointed Agencies

The DuPage County Chair nominates, and the DuPage County Board approves, over 140 county residents to serve on governmental bodies that deliver a variety of public services. Residents interested in serving on a county-appointed agency are required to complete an online application. Prior to submitting an application, residents are encouraged to first review the qualifications associated with each agency listed below and attend a meeting of the public body to better understand the roles and responsibilities.

The County Chair selects candidates for nomination to the county board based upon interest, experience, skill set required, and with the goal of enhancing diversity. After selecting a proposed candidate, the County Chair will transmit the nomination to the county board two weeks prior to the nomination appearing on a county board meeting agenda for approval.

Residents approved to serve are required to complete two online training courses on Ethics and the Open Meetings Act (OMA) and to also file an Economic Interest Statement with the County Clerk.

Responsibilities
Wheaton Sanitary District treats wastewater for a population of about 62,000 people spread over about 9,000 acres, including most of Wheaton, southern Carol Stream, a small portion of Glen Ellyn, a small portion of Winfield, and unincorporated areas of DuPage County, including the County complex. The District is not a taxing body. Most of the revenue for operations is generated from user charges, based on water consumption. The balance of revenues comes from fees for construction permits, connection permits, septage disposal, leachate disposal, and chemical toilet disposal. Complimentary District services include a used motor oil and oil filter recycling program every Saturday from 10 a.m. until noon. The District has about 67 miles of sewer lines, 1,600 manholes, and two lift stations. The lines are small, with nearly 70 percent of the lines being less than 12 inches in diameter. Relative to age, about 45 percent of the lines are less than 25 years old, and 97 percent of the lines are less than 50 years old. Another 120 miles of sewer lines, not owned by the District, connect to the District's interceptor sewers which transport the flow to the wastewater treatment plant. View map of the district.
