The Village of Winnebago reached an agreement with the Rock River Water Reclamation District (the District) in December 2011 for them to completely take over our sewer system. The agreed upon take over date is February 6, 2012. The District will take over billing for sewer usage on March 1, 2012. The District bills on a quarterly basis so your first sewer bill they generate will be after the first of August for the months of March, April, and May.
