The Village would like to advise residents of the start of the 2014 Sewer Televising and Cleaning Program.
In response to the severe flooding events from this past summer, the sewer cleaning and televising program will focus on main line sewers located on Ogden Avenue, Hillgrove Avenue, Cossitt Avenue and 49th Street to ensure these sewers are functioning properly. Other smaller diameter sewers will also be televised that are associated with upcoming capital projects.
The purpose of the sewer televising and cleaning program is to maintain the Village’s sewer system by removing debris from within the sewers, assessing the condition of the pipes with special cameras to record pipe conditions, and identifying areas that require immediate repair. The information collected from the televising is then used to aid in future infrastructure planning and mapping objectives.
This work will be performed by Sheridan Plumbing & Sewer, Inc. and is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, November 12. Depending on weather, we expect the work to take approximately two months to complete.
Cleaning and inspection work will not involve any construction excavation or surface disruption. All work will be completed from existing sewer manholes located in the streets, sidewalks and alleys. Temporary traffic delays may be experienced from equipment parked in the street. No disruption to sanitary sewer service is expected and residents can continue to use their sanitary sewer service while this work is occurring.
We apologize for any inconvenience resulting from this work. If you have any questions, or if there are any special circumstances that require coordination, please contact the Department of Public Works at (708) 579-2328.
