2019 Construction Projects


Church Street Sanitary Sewer Improvements

This project will involve the installation of cured-in-place pipe liner, manhole installation, point repairs and partial abandonment of the sanitary sewer along Church Street bounded between West Main Street and West Center Street.  This project is scheduled to begin the week of July 22nd with a target completion date of August 30th. Impacts to traffic are expected to be minimal; however daytime lane and roadway closures should be expected and one day of restricted water use may occur.


East Orange Street Water Main Improvements

This project will involve the installation of 1,625 feet of 8 inch water main along East Orange Street from IL Route 47 to the east end. This project is anticipated to be underway the week of July 15th with a target completion date of November 2019.  Impacts to traffic are expected to be minimal; however daytime lane and roadway closures should be expected.


Water Well No. 7 Rehabilitation

This project will consist of rehabilitation of existing Water Well No. 7 pumping equipment and piping and televising of the well.  Bidding and contracting are expected in August-September 2019, with construction estimated from October 2019 to January 2020.  Well No. 7 and its associated Water Treatment Plant will be out of service during construction, so scheduling is strategically planned during a traditional lower water use period.


Water Well No. 7 Standby Generator

This project will involve the installation of a new standby generator for Water Well No. 7 and the associated Water Treatment Plant.  Bidding and contracting are expected in July-August 2019, with construction estimated from September 2019 to February 2020.  This project is not expected to significantly impact water system operations.  


Water Treatment Plant No. 8 & 9 Cation Exchange Media Replacement

This project will involve the replacement of the Cation Exchange resin and support gravel, as the existing media is near the end of life.  Bidding and contracting are expected in October-November 2019, with construction estimated from January to April 2020.  The facility will be out of service for 1-2 weeks during construction, so scheduling is strategically planned during a traditional lower water use period, and measures will be taken to minimize the amount of time that this facility is out of service.
