Well #5 Construction Updates

The Village would like to provide residents with information about the construction of the new deep well: 

October 2020:

In the coming days the well motor will be set, sealed, and the pump assembled. Column pipe is being mobilized and lengths of pipe will be pushed in the coming week. It is anticipated that pump tests, coliform tests, and IEPA sample collections will take place before the end of the month. The Water Department continues to work with Concentric Integration to ensure that all necessary modifications are completed before treatment tests begin. 

August 2020:

The electrical building for Well #5 has been placed on the site. Soon the work will transition from the Village's contractor to ComED, who will install a utility pole on the south side of Burlington, run the new primary line, and set the transformer. Once that is complete Suez (Waterworks) will be back in to set the pump and motor, later this fall.

July 2020:

Excavation and foundation work for the electrical building has been completed. The underground electrical work has begun, and will take approximately two weeks to complete. The electrical building is scheduled to arrive the week of August 17, and any street closures will be communicated prior to its arrival. Installation of the column pipe, well pump, motor, and test pumping will be scheduled following the completion of site work. Despite numerous construction delays as a result of COVID-19, the well is anticipated to be online by mid- to late- October.
