Project Information


This Project Includes:  In 2014, RJN Group performed Village wide flow monitoring and Inflow and Infiltration Analysis throughout the Village to assign a level of priority bases on backups and peaking factors to each sanitary sewer basin area.  The general plan for the Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Services and rehabilitation programs for the next five years is to focus on the Very High Priority basins and the High Priority Basins, including performing smoke testing, manhole inspections and closed circuit televising (CCTV) in each of those areas.

In 2016, smoke testing and manhole inspections on basins WHL-02/02A, WHL-05 and WHL-08 will commence first, with follow-up services including: dye testing of defects indicating possible cross-connections found during smoke testing.  Approximately 82,046 LF of sewers, 352 manholes and 997 properties exist within these basins.  RJN Group will also review televising data of basin WHL-08 completed by Public Works’ staff, approximately 38,240 LF of sewers.
