As part of its ongoing responsibilities, the Public Works Department maintains 134 miles of sanitary sewer main with 3,411 manholes. To ensure the Village's sanitary sewers function as designed, crews periodically clean, televise, and assess the condition of each individual manhole, and schedule repairs as necessary.
Depending on the deficiency, manholes can be rehabilitated with simple repairs, such as installing new riser rings, or more complex means, such as applying epoxy lining to interior walls. The primary objectives of these repairs are to preserve the structural integrity of the manhole, prevent or correct points where stormwater or groundwater can infiltrate the structure, and extend the useful life of the structures.
In 2021, the Village will complete manhole rehabilitation in two phases. The first phase (March - April 2021) will occur primarily in and around the area bounded by Shermer Road to the west, Waukegan Road to the east and Illinois Road to the south. The second phase (June 2021) will be primarily in the Northbrook East subdivision.
Enabling ResolutionOn Tuesday, February 23, the Village Board approved Resolution 2021-21, which awarded the contract for Phase I and Phase II work to Culy Contracting of Winchester, Indiana.
