Notice of Plant Construction Activities
(Posted July 12, 2018)

Dear Neighbors,

As we’re sure many of you have noticed, there has been some increased noise over the past week, which is related to our ongoing $17.5M Facilities Improvement Construction. For the past several weeks a subcontractor has been “driving” in sheet piles to form a water cutoff system for a deep excavation, so when they hit obstructions during the “driving,” they are forced to hammer the sheets. This is the cause of the loud banging you’ve been experiencing from time to time. Unfortunately, there are no other ways around the obstructions, although that subcontractor is limited to only working during hours allowed per the Village of Glen Ellyn ordinances, so there should be no disturbances during non-working hours in relation to that specific work. The driving operation is expected to be completed no later than next Wednesday, July 18.

Also, the general contractor will need to be perform some night work over night Thursday, July 12, to Friday, July 13. Due to the nature of the work that needs to be performed, the Authority will need to shut down the entire plant, which is only possible to do overnight when flows are at their lowest. However, the work that the general contractor will be performing will have minimal noise and should not create any disturbances. If you do experience any issues, please call the cell phone for our Operations Superintendent, Dave Goodalis, at 630-918-4419.

We appreciate your continued patience, and please feel free to contact us for any reason.
