White Pines Watermain Construction Updates
During the week of Nov 9, 2020, Crew one finished service transfers along IL-83 as well as made a watermain connection on Red Oak/Briar. Crew 2 prepared for and begin transfer of water services on Church Rd. The paving sub-contractor installed driveway aprons along IL-83. Crew 3 prepared parkways along Crest Ave and Red Oak (IL83 to Briar) for topsoil and sod.
Weather permitting, during the week of Nov 16, 2020, Crew 1 will be disconnecting an existing watermain on Church Rd as well on Third Ave. These operations will require watermain shutdown and impacted residents will be notified via door hangers 24-hrs in advance. Crew 1 will be leaving the site after the disconnection are completed. Crew 2 will be working alongside the boring contractor to continue transferring water services on Church Rd. Crew 3 will be Church Rd patching the roadway as well as backfill services transfer pits behind Crew 2. The landscaping sub-contractor is scheduled to be onsite during the latter half of the week to install topsoil and sod on Crest Ave and Red Oak. They will also install topsoil and seed/blanker along IL-83/Third Ave and Church Rd.
During the week of Oct 19, 2020, one crew worked on service transfers on Crest Ave while the second crew worked on stubbing out services to b-boxes along IL-83. They also successfully pressure tested and chlorinated the new watermain on Red Oak St and are awaiting chlorination results. Weather permitting, during the week of October 26, 2020, the crew on Crest Ave will continue working on water service transfers to the new watermain on Crest Ave. The second crew will be working on water service hook up along IL-83 in conjunction with the boring contractor.
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.
