The Village of Lombard is proud to announce the completion of the RooseveltRd. Water Main Lining Project, almost 1 month ahead of schedule.
The project, which was completed over a two year timeframe, included the lining of the 16,000 linear feet of water main along Roosevelt Rd. via a cured in place pipe (CIPP) of which extended the pipe’s life up to another 50 years.
The cured in place lining technology is a relatively new procedure for water main rehabilitation that has proven effective in rehabilitating sanitary and storm sewer. The Village considered multiple techniques for rehabilitation and determined that the CIPP process was the most cost efficient alternative. The improvements are meant to significantly reduce the amount of dangerous and expensive water main breaks along Roosevelt Rd., to increase functionality and efficiency of the existing water main, and to continue to provide residents and businesses with excellent water quality.
“We’re grateful for the patience and the understanding of the community and motorists that travel the Roosevelt Rd. Corridor,” said Director of Lombard Public Works Carl Goldsmith. “We know that construction can cause inconvenient impacts on traffic but this type of infrastructure improvement was necessary for the long term health of the Village.”
Phase I of the project began in June 2016, included the lining of the water main from Finley Rd. to Fairfield Ave, and cost $ 4,071,931.33. Phase 2 of the project began in March 2017, included the water main from Fairfield to Wisconsin Avenues, and cost $4,273,162.10. The entire project was 100% funded by an IEPA Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan.
Prior to the start of the project the Village communicated with business owners, motorists, and residents by sending letters and press releases, and hosting open houses. Throughout the duration of the project updates including slideshow presentations, photos, letters, notifications, and maps were shared on the Village’s project page www.38water.org, and shared on Social Media.Please contact Public Works at (630)620-5740 with any questions.
