The recent winter weather has delayed the sewer-lining project that many in the Cress Creek area have been waiting for.
The city had planned to do the project in 2015 but moved it up to this year because of the localized impact of the flood in 2013.
The sanitary sewer-lining program is designed to rehabilitate Naperville’s older sewer mains using cured in place pipelining which requires no digging and long term disruption.
“It basically makes old infrastructure new again and keeps it going for an additional 50 years,” said Linda LaCloche, Communications Manager for the City of Naperville.
Once complete these areas should see improvements in flooding.
The project has been moved back until February, but clean up and prep work will begin in the coming weeks.
It’s anticipated to be completed by June of this year.
