2016 ANNUAL SANITARY SEWER CURED IN PLACE PIPE (CIPP) PROJECT
--UPDATE--

Dear Resident: Date: July 18, 2016

This notice is to inform you that sometime during the next several weeks, a contractor by the name of Insituform Technologies USA, LLC. (ITUSA) will be doing some sanitary sewer reconstruction work in your neighborhood. This work has been authorized by Village of Bensenville.

An innovative process called "Insituform" will be utilized to reconstruct certain sections of badly deteriorated sewer. This reconstruction will be done without time consuming, expensive and disruptive excavation. Instead of digging up and replacing the old pipeline, the Insituform® process provides for the insertion of a special lining inside the pipe, creating a new smooth-surfaced, long-lasting pipe within the old sewer.

Normally each section of sewer to be reconstructed will require up to a 12 hour period to complete. During this time the sewer connection to your home or commercial establishment will be sealed off. Consequently, you will be asked to make limited use of your toilet facilities and refrain from doing laundry for 12 hours.

You will receive a white door hanger informing you of the time and date of your 12 hour limited water use period. (If work is canceled for that date you will receive a new door hanger notifying you of the cancellation).


As stated above, Insituform® is a new and interesting process. Residents are welcome as spectators, if they watch from a safe distance. The project supervisor, when he has time, will be able to explain the process to interested persons at the job site.

By the way, while we have your attention, here's a tip: Take a minute to pour a cup or two of water into each basement floor drain. It keeps the "trap" full which prevents sewer odor from coming into your home. Because the water evaporates, this should be done regularly. It is also a good idea to keep your toilet lids down for the date and time in question.

We certainly appreciate your cooperation and apologize in advance for any inconvenience we may cause you during this work period. If you have any questions or comments, please call Insituform Technologies USA, LLC. at (708) 326-5028 and refer to Insituform® work in your neighborhood.

The Village of Bensenville is undertaking a sanitary sewer CIPP project in the vicinity of your home in the summer of 2016. This is commonly known as sewer lining. The project consists of sewer lining of approximately 6,500 linear feet of sanitary sewer. The areas being improved by this project are highlighted in red color in the map below. An innovative process called "Insituform" will be utilized to reconstruct certain sections of badly deteriorated sewer. This reconstruction will be done without time consuming, expensive and disruptive excavation. Instead of digging up and replacing the old pipeline, the Insituform® process provides for the insertion of a special lining inside the pipe, creating a new smooth-surfaced, long-lasting pipe within the old sewer.
