Why is this project necessary? The sanitary sewers identified within the project area need to be cleaned and inspected, as prioritized by a previous assessment done by the Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT).  SL-RAT is a very portable onsite assessment tool for quickly detecting the level of blockage conditions in sewers. The data acquired by cleaning and televising will then be entered into the Village’s Asset Management and Geographical Information System to document the sewers’ current physical condition.
How does this benefit the Village? Regularly cleaning and inspecting sanitary sewers allows staff to maintain them for unobstructed flow capacity, and also to program any necessary improvements in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).
Will this impact traffic and parking? 
There may be periods when construction traffic/equipment/workers will present a minor temporary delay. Residents should exercise caution when approaching any work zone. There may be brief temporary lane reductions but no road closures should be necessary.
