Water Service Installation Continues

Work Completed Last Week:
·         Completed installation of storm sewer improvements
·         Began installation of water services to individual homes.
·         Storm sewer Improvements are 100% completed for the project.

Work Anticipated This Week:
·         Continue installation of water services to individual homes.
·         Make connections between existing and new water mains. 

Water service replacements will continue this week. 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.

Once the water main improvements are completed, all of the underground utility improvements associated with the Village project will be completed. At that time, Nicor Gas will be on-site to replace the existing gas mains and services along Debra Lane and Sandy Lane within the project limits. During that time, the general contractor for the project, DiMeo Brothers, will not be on-site until Nicor Gas is completed their necessary improvements. It is anticipated that Nicor Gas will be on-site in Mid-May. It is anticipated the Nicor work will take approximately one and half months to complete.  Once the Nicor Gas improvements are completed, DiMeo Brothers, will re-mobilize to complete the roadway improvements including roadway reconstruction, new concrete curb & gutter, and new asphalt pavement.
