Project Information

Due to a large amount of water main breaks that resulted in multiple boil orders in late June/ July 2023 due to the age/ condition/ and soil conditions the City has moved to get an emergency permit from the IEPA to replace approximately 820 linear feet of 6" water main with a new 8" water main. This will create longevity and redundancy for Kimball Hill School and surrounding businesses within the Jewel Shopping Center. 

Construction Limits

The construction will take place within utility easements spanning from Meadow Drive west approximately 820 linear feet. See the picture link below.
