Posted to 2021 CIPP Sewer Rehabilitation by Nick Christie

The Park Forest Public Works Dept. (DPW) would like to notify you of sewer main construction work scheduled to begin on your street or in your neighboring area.  DPW plans to install a Cured In-Place Pipe Liner (CIPP Lining) to rehabilitate the main sanitary sewers in the Eastgate neighborhood.  

 Michels Corporation is the Village contractor for this project and together we want to inform you of what to expect. Initial work began the week of August 2nd with cleaning and video inspection of the existing sewer. This initial work will last approximately three weeks. After the sewer is inspected, the CIPP liner will be made in a factory off the project site and residents will not see much activity. In approximately September of 2021, the contractor will return to install the CIPP liner and make other repairs. This project will only be Monday-Friday, 7am-6pm, with no weekend work anticipated. CIPP lining is a trenchless technology, and limited road, sidewalk, or grass restoration is expected. 

During the initial cleaning and inspection phase of the project, it is not anticipated that residents should be impacted beyond common construction inconveniences such as traffic congestion, dust, noise, and heavy equipment. The Contractor will follow up with door hangers prior to work on your street that will address temporary sewer service disruptions. 

 We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we complete this work.  If you have any questions, please call (708) 503-7702.
