White Pines Watermain Construction Updates

Update 10/30/2020

During the week of Oct 26, 2020, one crew finished service transfers on Crest Ave and begin stubbing out services along Church Rd. Crew 2 worked on services transfers on Red Oak between IL-83 and Briar Lane. Crew 3 worked on saw-cutting and prepping the pavement for HMA placement on both Crest Ave and Red Oak. Weather permitting, during the week of November 2, 2020, Crew 1 will continue stubbing out services along Church Rd. Crew 2 will be working along with the boring sub-contractor on IL-83 for water service transfers. The paving subcontractor is tentatively scheduled for latter half of the week to install HMA binder.  
Traffic will be hindered on Crest Ave, Church Rd and IL-83 next week due to ongoing work. At this time, we are not anticipating street closures and/or any watermain shutdowns next week. 

Update 10/15/2020

During the week of Oct 12, 2020 one crew finished watermain installation along Crest Ave by making a tie-in at Church Rd. They also successfully pressure tested and chlorinated the new watermain on Crest Ave. The second crew installed watermain along Red Oak between IL-83 and Briar. They have successfully pressure tested the new watermain along IL-83 and are awaiting chlorination results. Weather permitting, during the week of October 19, 2020, the crew on Crest Ave will finish some minor storm sewer work before moving onto water service transfers to the new watermain on Crest Ave. The second crew will be working on water service installation up to b-box along IL-83. The water services from the b-box to the back of the homes will be bored by a sub-contractor which will likely begin mid to late next week.

During the week of September 28, 2020 one crew began installation of watermain on Crest Ave while the second crew began installation of watermain along IL-83. Weather permitting, during the week of October 5th, both crews will continue with the watermain installation at their respective locations. We are anticipating a watermain shutdown on Tuesday, October 6th at Third Ave/IL-83. This was originally scheduled for September 29th but had to be postponed due to unforeseen underground utility conflicts. The impacted residents will be notified via door hangers. A precautionary boil order will be in place for approximately 24-hrs after the water is turned back on.
