The Water Main Replacement Program (WMP) program was initiated in 2016 based on the recommendations of the Baxter & Woodman water rate study commissioned by the Village. The final report recommended that the Village budget $900,000 per year between 2016 and 2020 to replace aging water mains. The program is primarily focused on areas with older (50+ year old) water mains, typically cast iron, with a high break frequency. The new water mains are Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), with an expected service life of 75 years or more.
Streets Included in the 2018 WMP
The 2018 program includes the replacement of existing water mains and appurtenances at two locations (blue lines on map at right):
E. WALNUT ST. (Foster Ave. to Spring St.)
SPRING ST. (Foster Ave. to E. Walnut St.)
Weather permitting, construction for the WMP is scheduled to begin in April and will continue through the end of June. There will be a period of times when streets will be closed to vehicular traffic during the construction of this project. Roadway detour signs will be in place to direct the commuting public to navigate in and around the project construction area. The contractor will be required to notify residents whose driveways may be inaccessible for a short period of time during the day, however, temporary access will be provided each evening. We apologize for the inconvenience created during construction, and thank residents for their patience and cooperation.
