Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Program - 2020

The Village has contracted with Michels Pipe Services for the 2020 Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Program. Work is anticipated to begin in January, 2020 and conclude by May 31, 2020. Village residents affected by this work will receive a letter two days in advance and another notice via door-hanger one day in advance if water use is to be restricted.

Sanitary lines must be cleaned and televised prior to rehabilitation. If defects are identified, a cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) liner is installed whenever possible. In some instances excavation may still be required to conduct repairs. The following are locations, listed in alphabetical order, where rehabilitation will occur:

  • Arlington Street;
  • Ashley Court;
  • Berkley Lane;
