2011/2012 Projects

Water Main Replacement
A significant amount of deteriorated and undersized water mains were replaced primarily in the Northeast Quadrant of the Village. Three separate projects are planned:
  • 147th St Metra Station to Millard - This project was completed in the Fall of 2011. We replaced the worst section of water main in the Village. It was funded partially with CDBG grant obtained by the Village in the amount of $100,000. The Village also will be receiving an addtional performance based grant of $100,000 from the program for the project.
  • Abbottsford Rd. 147th St to 145th St. - This project took place in the summer of 2012 as the Village has received $150,000 CDBG grant to help funding.
  • Mulitple Blocks of Water Main - This was the largest project by far and involved several blocks of replacement including 147th St , Waverly, Abbottsford and Hamlin to name a few. Work began in April 2012. All that remains is Cicero Ave. 145th St to 147th St. Review the entire Replacement Program.

Water Meter Replacement Program


In the Fall/Winter of 2011, the Village replaced approximately 80% of the water meters in the village. We upgraded to a fixed base system so that your meter will be read wirelessly to antennas located in strategic positions throughout the village. This allows us to read specific routes on demand and produce bills in a quick, efficient and accurate manner, thereby saving manpower and potentially changing our billing cycle to monthly or bi-monthly rather than quarterly. Your cooperation was greatly appreciated during this effort.

Natalie Creek Bridge Replacement


Over the last 50 years, Keystone, Karlov and Keeler have overflowed their banks bringing repeated flooding damage to residents nearby Natalie Creek. This long standing problem should be resolved with the completion of this much needed project. Recently all three streets have experienced collapses due to the deterioration of the corrugated metal pipe culverts that currently exist. Pouring dollars into temporary repairs was no longer an option and the village replaced the culverts with pre-cast bridges across the entire span of Natalie Creek thereby eliminating debris from blocking flow. The restrictive nature of the old culverts will no longer be a problem and while we still expect Natalie Creek to swell significantly during major storms we feel this improvement will not only bring flood relief to the immediate area, but also improve public safety as the streets will no longer be in danger of collapsing.
