Water Main, Storm Sewer, Sanitary Sewer, and Pond Work On-Going

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Elm Street between Henley Street and Dewes Street.

The water main crew installed new water main along Henley Street from Washington Street to Harlem Avenue.

The required testing for the new water main on Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue has been completed. The required approvals have been received so the new water main can be placed into service and homes connected to the new water main in this location.

Mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street and behind the Glenview Methodist Church are on-going. Excavation of the pond is nearly completed. The contractor is continuing to re-spread the existing topsoil along the pond bottom and along the berms. It is anticipated the landscaping of the pond will begin in the next 2-3 weeks.

On Monday and Tuesday, the contractor will be installing the new storm sewer and sanitary sewer in the intersection of Dewes Street and Elm Street. To facilitate construction in this area, the intersection will be closed to all traffic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as work continues in this area.

This week water service installation will begin on Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue.  New water services will be installed from the new water main to the existing b-box within the Village right-of-way. New services will not be installed all the way to your home. During water service installation, water to individual homes will be turned off while the transition is made. Typically the water is turned off for 1-hour. The contractor will knock on the door of each home prior to turning off the water. It is difficult to determine the exact timing of the water shut-off; therefore, 24-hour notice is not given. The contractor will work with you to determine the best time to shut-off the water to the greatest extent possible.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding as you deal with the construction in your neighborhood and disruptions to your water service.

Underground Utility Work Heading North on Elm Street Towards Dewes Street

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street between Lincoln Street and Elm Street. The contractor will have crossed through the intersection of Elm Street and Henley Street by the end of the week. The contractor is anticipating to work in this intersection on Saturday to meet this timeframe. We appreciate your cooperation while this intersection is closed to facilitate construction in the area.

The second sewer crew installed storm sewer services and miscellaneous storm sewer improvements on Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. The contractor also installed sanitary sewer services between Washington Street and Harlem Avenue.

The contractor performed the necessary testing on the newly installed water main along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. It is anticipated we will have the results of these tests by the end of the week and necessary approvals early next week.

Mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street and behind the Glenview Methodist Church are on-going. The contractor is continuing to excavate and remove the existing soils while salvaging and re-spreading the existing topsoil. The entire pond excavation and topsoil re-spreading will likely take 3 to 4 more weeks to complete. Once the mass grading and topsoil re-spreading is completed, the landscaping of the detention pond will begin.

The large storm sewer installation along Henley will be completed by the end of this week. The large storm sewer and sanitary sewer replacement will now head north on Elm Street towards Dewes Street. It is anticipated they will be at the intersection of Dewes Street and Elm Street by the end of next week.

New water services will be installed to each home where the new water main has been installed and tested. Next week, this process will begin on Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue.  New water services will be installed from the new water main to the existing b-box within the Village right-of-way. New services will not be installed all the way to your home. During water service installation, water to individual homes will be turned off while the transition is made. Typically the water is turned off for 1-hour. The contractor will knock on the door of each home prior to turning off the water. It is difficult to determine the exact timing of the water shut-off; therefore, 24-hour notice is not given. The contractor will work with you to determine the best time to shut-off the water to the greatest extent possible.

Also next week, the contractor is anticipating to begin the water main installation on Henley Street between Washington Street and Harlem Avenue. The contractor will begin at Washington and work east towards Harlem Avenue. A water main shut-down will be required to connect the new water main to the existing water main at Washington Street and Henley Street. Residents will be notified 24 hours in advance of any scheduled water main shut-down.            

Unfortunately, there are instances which the water main needs to be shut down in an emergency due to water main break or something being hit during construction. Please understand the Village will do everything possible to notify residents of the disruption in water service and get the water turned on as quickly as possible.

Thanks again for your patience and understanding as you deal with the construction in your neighborhood and disruptions to your water service.

Storm and Sanitary Installation On-Going on Henley Street. Water Main Started

This past week, DiMeo Brothers  continued to install the 48-inch storm sewer and replace the existing 8-inch sanitary sewer along Henley Street between Washington Street and Lincoln Street. The contractor has crossed through the intersection of Lincoln Street and Henley Street. We appreciate your cooperation while this intersection was closed to facilitate construction in the area.

Last week, the contractor completed installing the 48-inch storm sewer along Lehigh Avenue from Henley Street to the south, past Linneman Street, and to the proposed detention pond behind Glenview Methodist Church.

Also last week, the contractor began installing the new 8-inch water main along Henley Street at Lehigh Avenue. The contractor connected to the existing 16-inch water main along Linneman and continued to work west towards Harlem Avenue.

Mass grading and excavation operations within the proposed detention pond south of Linneman Street and behind the Glenview Methodist Church are on-going. The contractor is continuing to excavate and remove the existing soils while salvaging and re-spreading the existing topsoil. The entire pond excavation and topsoil re-spreading will likely take 1-2 months to complete. We appreciate your consideration with the amount of truck traffic present during the pond construction.

Next week the contractor will continue moving west along Henley Street installing the new 48-inch storm sewer and 8-inch sanitary sewer at the same time between Lincoln Street and Elm Street.  Depending on work progress, the contractor is hoping to get to the intersection of Elm Street and Henley Street by the end of the week. 

Once the contractor reaches Elm Street, the mainline work will progress north on Elm Street to Dewes Street.

Also next week, the contractor will continue to install the new 8-inch water main along Henley Street between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue. Depending on work progress, the contractor may also begin installing water main between Harlem Avenue and Washington Street.  The contractor will also likely begin the required water main testing for the new water main between Lehigh Avenue and Harlem Avenue.

Throughout the water main installation process, residents will periodically be without water due to water main shut-downs or reinstatement of water services. Residents will be notified of any scheduled water main shut-down as far in advance as possible. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during the inconvenience of these water main shut-downs. We appreciate the understanding of those residents that had their water shut-off last week as the water main work began.
