Central Stickney Sanitary Dist Central Stickney Sanitary District Information

The District:
The Central Stickney Sanitary District was formed in 1954 to serve an area in unincorporated Cook County bounded by Laramie Ave on the east, 51st Street on the south, Central Ave on the west and near 47th Street on the north with just sanitary sewage system servicing approximately 851 homes.In
1968, potable water distribution system was added.

These services are now providing drinking water to approximately 705 homes, Charles J. Sahs School (District 110) and several businesses, which comprises an approximate population of 2000.

Operating as usual


Believe it or not, the average water usage per person per day is 200 gallons.
Here's how...
Showering wet down, soap up, rinse off = 4 gallons
Brushing teeth wet brush, rinse briefly, = ½ gallon
Shaving, fill sink basin = 1 gallon
Washing hands fill sink basin = 1 gallon
Tub bath minimal water level = 10 to 12 gallons
Flushing toilet using a smaller tank = 4 to 6 gallons
Dish-washing- Washing and rinsing in the sink = 5 gallons
Automatic dishwasher short cycle = 7 gallons
Washing machine short cycle with minimal water level = 27 gallons
Outdoor watering average hose = 10 gallons per minute

Leaks - even a small drip can add up to 25 gallons per day.
The above gallon usage is calculated minimally. You can count on using quite a bit more if you leave the water running while brushing your teeth, shaving, washing the dishes, using old toilets that require more water, running the dishwasher and washing machines on longer cycles and filling the bath tub to the top. As you are aware, water is not cheap any more or limitless. Please use this natural resource wisely and save on your water bill


Every winter, Central Stickney residents make big repairs to damage caused by frozen pipes that have burst. We would like to remind you that there are some simple steps that you can take to prevent pipes from freezing:
• If you have not already done it, remove all garden hoses and cover the bibs with Styrofoam hose bib insulating caps.
• Insulate pipes, particularly those outside or on the perimeter of the residence.
• Maintain adequate heat throughout your house.
• Make sure that there is warm air circulating in any area where there are water pipes. Remember to open a door from a heated area to ensure that the pipes stay warm enough to run.
• Insulate pipes, particularly those outside or on the perimeter of the residence.
• Run a trickle of cold water on each floor of the home at the points furthest from the location of the main water service comes into the home. The small increase to your water bill could save you hundreds of dollars in charges from plumbing repairs if your pipes burst.
• Finally, if your pipes do freeze, do not use any open flame to thaw them. Try a hair dryer or heating pad.

Important News for the Cook County "Wheel Tax" (Vehicle Stickers) for 2019-20.
We at the Central Stickney Sanitary District and ALL Township Offices will NO LONGER sell the Cook County vehicle stickers.
Please note: The County choose to eliminate sales at all Township facilities, not us.
Cook County President and Board of Commissioners voted to sell a new STICKERLESS vehicle sticker through their office and many currency exchanges in the area.
Please do not call us yet for any further information because we know as much as you do right now. The County has not sent us a letter yet but a representative of the county informed me that everyone in the community will get a letter in the mail explaining this NEW STICKERLESS system.
Here is a link to the Cook County website.

Section 74-552 of the Cook County Wheel Tax Ordinance requires a Cook County Vehicle License for all motor vehicles owned and operated by a person who resides within unincorporated Cook County. The Cook County Vehicle License is an annual license (sticker/decal) for the period of July 1st through Ju...


It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of one of America's greatest points of light, the death of President George H.W. Bush.
The Central Stickney Sanitary District will honor the National Day of Mourning and our office will be closed Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
A Presidential Proclamation asks the American people to assemble on that day in their respective places of worship, there to pay homage to the memory of President George H.W. Bush.


Update: I heard from Commissioner Tololski's office and once again I explained how the garbage prices vary widely from one home to another. He said it will take time for discussions in the fiance committees and to please be patient.


Hi, I am going to try my best to get to the office tomorrow morning. Please, if all possible give our crews time to clear the snow around our building to pay your water bill. Remember we have a 24 hour depository, bills not due until next week.


"Senate Bill 1451 was introduced in February of 2017. The topic just came to the attention of the Water Utility Council. This bill creates the Small Wireless Facilities Deployment Act. It will prohibit a municipality from regulating or charging for the collocation of small wireless facilities (antennae) on water towers. This will open up all water towers to free use by cell companies for the location of their antennae."
If this passes I hope the cellular companies passes the savings on to it's costumers.


I beg all of our clients to please keep pipes and meters from freezing.

Open cabinet doors under sinks and in storage areas to allow heat from the room to circulate around uninsulated pipes.
Allow a trickle of hot and cold water to drip overnight; however, be careful not to run the water into a drain line that is exposed to the extreme cold because that line might freeze.
Insulate all pipes in unheated areas or against uninsulated outside walls, such as in garages or crawl spaces.
Apply heat tape or thermostat-controlled heat cables around pipes that are exposed and prone to freezing.
Make sure the heat is turned on in the building and is set no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
