Storm & Sanitary Sewer Construction
2021 Storm and Sanitary Sewer Construction
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 & storm sewers in your neighborhood. This process allows for the trenchless installation of a protective pipe liner with limited ground disturbance to the surrounding area.
The project is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of June of June 14, 2021, with expected completion to be by the week of September 13, 2021 (weather permitting).
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 daytime 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 or as otherwise directed.
Typically, each section of sewer to be lined will require up to twelve (12) hours to complete, generally between the hours of 7am & 7pm.
During portions of this time, the sewer connection to some homes will be sealed off. These homes will be specifically notified also by mail. 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).
Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience during this project. Any questions or concerns please contact:
