Sanitary Sewer Cleaning & Televising Underway
Posted on 10/08/2018

Sanitary sewer cleaning and televising is currently in process in the one of the village's high priority areas. The high priority area is between 159th Street and 151st Street and east from 82nd Avenue to 9100 west. (See attached map for clarification)

Cleaning and televising is used to identify sanitary pipe failures and overall condition of the system, as well as identifying rain water infiltration into the sanitary sewers. This is part of the village's I & I Program being overseen by RJN group and the work is contracted by Hydro - Vision.

The work is being performed Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 am and 4:00 pm. Notices have been distributed in the days prior to work being completed.

Smoke testing is also in progress in the same high priority area as the sewer cleaning and televising. The testing and monitoring is being performed by the engineering firm RJN Group. Smoke testing is a simple way to identify locations where storm water is entering the sanitary sewer system.
