The Village owns and maintains approximately 360,000 lineal feet of sanitary, storm and combined sewers. The life expectancy of a sewer can vary, but a conservative estimate is that the useful life of a sewer is 100 years. Therefore a rehabilitation program to repair, replace, and/or rehabilitate the existing infrastructure is required to maintain the functionality of the existing system.
The Village’s 2016 Sewer Lining/Rehabilitation Project is planned to start in April, 2017 and is scheduled to be completed during the summer of 2017. The Village will be repairing sewers by utilizing a process called cured-in-place pipe lining. This method of sewer rehabilitation will provide a new pipe within the existing pipe and does not require traditional open trench excavation methods. In some areas, spot sewer repairs that require excavation will be required prior to lining. The contract for this project was awarded to Insituform Technologies USA, LLC.
