Northwest Area Sewer Rehabilitation Program

Objective
To significantly improve the condition of selected sanitary sewer mains throughout the Village.

Description
This program consists of the rehabilitation of existing sewers by utilizing point repairs and sewer lining in the "Northwest" area of the Village: the area bounded by North Avenue on the north, Sunset Drive on the south, Lincoln Avenue on the west and Westmore Avenue on the east. The program will include approximately 6,100 lineal feet of sewer lining with pipe diameters ranging from 8 inches to 10 inches, and will also include approximately 10 point repairs.

Justification
The improvements are identified in the Sanitary Sewer Master Plan dated February 2008. The rehabilitation efforts will reduce the inflow and infiltration (I/I) of both stormwater and debris into the sanitary sewer system, thus lessening both the frequency and severity of sewer surcharges and sewer backups. The life of the existing sewer will also be extended. The Village will receive funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program for approximately 75% of construction costs.
