Project Description

This project involves constructing new storm sewers and water main on Center Avenue and First Street to reduce the frequency and intensity of localized flooding. The existing storm sewer is undersized which causes flooding during even small rainfall intensities. This project also includes the relocation of water main that is in conflict with the proposed storm sewers.  The location of the proposed storm sewer will disturb existing sidewalks that will need to be replaced.  

Enabling Resolution

On Tuesday, July 27, the Village Board approved Resolution 2021-101, awarding the construction contract for this project to Mauro Sewer Construction.
