Annual Sanitary Sewer Main Line Cleaning and Maintenance Program

April 16, 2014
 
As part of the Village’s annual sanitary service maintenance program, we have contracted with Duke's Root Control to conduct a chemical foaming treatment of certain sections of the Village’s sanitary sewer main lines.

What does this do for me?

The chemical foaming process will break down and hinder any tree root growth in the Village’s main sewer lines. This preventative maintenance will help in keeping our sewer pipes open and free from clogging and backing up.


What should I expect if they are working near my home?

The sanitary main sewer pipes, that will be cleaned this year, are located in the rear yard easements. As such, the contractor will be accessing the various manholes that are located in the rear yard easements. The list of affected streets is listed below.

When will they start this work and for how long?

The contractor has notified the Village and is ready to mobilize and start as early as Thursday, April 17, 2014. It should take the contractor approximately 2-5 days, depending on the weather, to complete all of the work.

Where are they doing this work?

The areas that will be receiving this sanitary cleaning work are as follows (all sanitary main lines are in the rear yard easements):
1. E. Paddock Dr. (the north side/even # addresses from N. Robinson Dr. to N. Williams Dr.)
2. E. Patten Dr. (the north side/even # addresses from N. Robinson Dr. to N. Williams Dr.)
3. E. Pratt Dr. (the north side/even # addresses from N. Robinson Dr. to N. Williams Dr.)
4. E. Plate Dr. (the north side/even # addresses from N. Robinson Dr. to N. Williams Dr.)
5. N. Whitcomb Dr. (the north side/odd # addresses from Jane Addams Dr. to E. Plate Dr.)

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Department of Public Works at (847) 705-5200 Utility Division.
