Hints on searching Resources

Some resources may be restricted—viewable only to logged-in users with the appropriate Security Level.

  1. Date range:
    • Recent shows resources posted within the past 3 months
      "Recent" in Resources has a much longer timeframe than that used for News Stories and Calendar events
    • All includes all resources
  2. Category—each resource is assigned to one category
  3. Topic—each resource can be assigned to multiple topics
    When searching by topic, you will likely have the greatest success starting with the topic, then narrowing the other search options as needed
  4. Keywords
    Looks for a word, phrase or part of a word in the title, description or detail fields

Printing the List or individual Resource Details

Using Print this page at the upper left will print the content displayed in the Resources list or the details of a resource item, without any of the surrounding page elements. The filter form in the list view is replaced with a summary of the filter settings.

Additional Hint: On some smaller devices you may find it helpful to use the Print option to display a simpler content-only view. Depending on the device, you may not actually be able to print, but it may produce a view that is easier to read. You will need to close the print window to get back to the site navigation.

Septic System Care and Maintenance

The majority of private sewage disposal systems in DuPage County consist of a septic tank and a septic field. The septic tank removes solids from household wastewater. After the wastewater exits the tank it flows under the ground through a series of pipes to the gravel filled trenches of the septic field. Proper maintenance of a septic tank is important to the proper functioning of the septic field.
