Water Main work Continues

DiMeo Bros, Inc. continued underground utility installations along Colfax Avenue last week. The contractor completed installing the new 8-inch water main between Harlem Avenue and Lincoln Street. The contractor also completed the water main testing associated with this section of new water main. The contractor then moved to Montgomery Lane to install the new 8-inch water main between Montgomery Lane and Shermer Road.

This week the contractor will complete the water main installation between Montgomery Lane and Shermer Road and perform the necessary testing.

The contractor will also begin installing the storm sewer improvements between Harlem Avenue and Lincoln Street. It was initially discussed that the storm sewer and water main installation would occur concurrently, but the contractor determine that was not their best option. The contractor will also begin installing new water services to those homes that are served off the water main along Colfax Avenue.

During water service installations, the contractor will need to disrupt service to individual homes during the re-connection process. This should take no longer then 1-hour and the contractor will notify all residents prior to the water being turned off.

We appreciate your patience throughout the entire construction process and during the water main shut downs that occurred this previous week and those required in the coming weeks.
