2018 Sanitary Sewer Construction Updates


The contractor is making a final push to complete major operations this week. Work along the backyards for homes along Ash St and Parkway Ave is expected to be completed today. Tomorrow, the contractor is planning on working on their most problematic line at South Old Rand Road and Pheasant Ridge.

The plan is to finish major lining operations on Thursday and follow-up Friday with inspection and cleanup (this includes equipment and trailers left on nearby streets. Please feel free to call or email Andrea Larson (information below) to report any equipment that may have been forgotten.

Thank you for the continued patience of all the residents in the area which have been affected by this work!

Note – work times and locations are subject to change with little to no notice due to weather, equipment, or other reasons.

PROJECT SUMMARY:  As part of ongoing efforts to extend the life of our aging infrastructure, the Village has contracted with Insituform Technologies USA to install cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining in large diameter sanitary sewers in your neighborhood.  This process allows for the trenchless installation of a protective pipe liner with limited ground disturbance to the surrounding area.

For this work, the contractor will be accessing the manholes located along streets and in the public utility easements in the area.  These manholes will be accessed for cleaning prior to the lining, then once again for lining activities, and finally for inspection.  You may notice temporary piping and cables laid between manholes during construction operations or overnight between operations.  If piping is laid across driveways or streets, Insituform will be providing access via temporary ramps for vehicles as needed.  

Typically, each section of sewer to be lined will require up to twelve (12) hours to complete, generally between the hours of 7 am & 7 pm.  During this time, the sewer connection to some homes will be sealed off.  Homeowners will be asked to make limited use of toilet facilities and refrain from doing laundry until the service connection can be reestablished.  Additional precautions residents can take during the period of service interruption include keeping toilet lids down and pouring 1-2 cups of water into basement floor drains to keep any odors from entering the home (this recommendation can be done regularly).  

Manhole access will be intermittent as construction activities progress.  The contractor, Insituform Technologies USA and/or the Construction Manager will attempt to contact you in person before to accessing the easements through backyards (if necessary).  Prior to limited water usage period, affected homes will receive a white door hanger informing of the date and times of service interruption. (If work is canceled for that date a red door hanger will notify homeowners of the cancellation).

The contractor is returning to Pheasant Ridge Drive and along S. Old Rand Road with a setup very similar to previous operations in the area. Select residents along Beechwood Drive may be contacted by the contractor as hoses will be laid along side yards and under some fences. A few residents may be cut off from vehicular access to driveways. Limited water usage will affect a few residences as well. Please see the attached map for parking requests and homes that may be affected with limited water usage.

PLEASE PARK VEHICLES ON THE STREET DURING THE DATES POSTED. This work will be coordinated with the Police Department to allow residents to park overnight during work dates. LIMITED WATER USAGE WILL BE IN EFFECT FOR HOMES RECEIVING DOOR HANGERS (day before work is starting). Please see the map below for additional information.

Residents requested to be out of driveways on THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, November 15-16 by 7am:

525, 515, 481, 485 Pheasant Ridge Drive.

Homes affected with limited water usage are requested to not perform activities that require large amounts of water usage (running the dishwasher, clothes washer, or long showers).
