Pump Loaner Program

The Village has a Pump Loaner Program to assist residents experiencing rear yard flooding associated with heavy rains and snowmelt. Rear yard flooding can approach foundations/basement windows which could cause basement flooding. The Village has three electric submersible pumps and makes them available to residents interested in pumping surface water out of rear yards.

Important Pump Loaner Program information:

  • These loaner pumps are for outdoor use only.

  • Pumps are available on a first come-first serve basis and are equipped with instructions on how to set up and operate. The Village will maintain a waiting list during periods of high demand.

  • Residents must pick up and drop off the pumps at the Village Hall (400 Park Avenue).

  • Residents are required to fully execute this Hold Harmless Agreement.

  • Pump systems will be loaned out for a period of 24 hours and must be returned within that timeframe and in working condition. A $100 fine will be assessed for returning the pump and all accessory equipment late.

To participate in this program, residents should contact the Village to request the use of a pump. Contact information is as follows:

  1. Call 708-366-7629 (Fire Department) any time, even on weekends and holidays.
