Saylor/Swain/Vallette Stormwater Improvement Project:

ComEd completed the final power connection at the transformer this week.  With power provided to the pump station, various contractors completed a startup of the pump equipment to make sure everything is performing as designed.  Once this testing is completed the pump station will be fully functionally.  The final steps will be the completion of the all operating and maintenance manuals, training for City Staff and the then City can take over full ownership and operation of the improvements.

Saylor/Swain/Vallette Project Update - 10.02.20

Posted on October 2, 2020 at 4:05 PM by Barbara Petrucci

Restoration activities were completed this week starting with placement of sod within the parkway.  Also, the roadway patches were completed and the final road surface course was placed on Friday.  With this pavement restoration finalized, the only major item remaining is the completion of the pumping station.  The pump station work will continue later this year once the pumps and equipment are fabricated and delivered to the site for installation.  At this point, the underground detention systems can handle flood waters but a pump would need to be brought to the site to pump out the water.

Saylor/Swain/Vallette – Project Update - 09.28.20

The utility work in front of the four lots has been completed and the restoration of this area has begun.  The concrete work has begun with curbs and sidewalks being poured.  The ground above the StormTrap system has been final graded and the seeding and erosion control blankets have been installed just short of the sidewalks.  The new parkway trees have also been planted, except for in the ones front of the four lots.  It is anticipated that the roadway improvements will continue next week once the curb has had an opportunity to cure.
