05/05/2019 - Village Board approved an engineering contract with Strand Associates for the design of the well’s treatment system replacement. 

12/12/2019 - A public hearing was conducted by the Board of Zoning, Planning and Appeals (ZPA) to review a proposed variance to reduce the required front yard setback from thirty (30) feet to nineteen (19) feet for the property. The ZPA recommended approval of the proposed variance.

01/07/2020 - Village Board approved the variance to reduce the required front yard setback for the property.

02/18/2020 - Village Board awarded the Well 10 rehabilitation bid to Midwest Well Services, Inc. Before the full replacement of the treatment system and construction of a new well house building can begin, the well equipment requires rehabilitation and testing. This work consists of pulling, inspecting, rehabilitating, and re-installing the shallow well pumping equipment.

05/19/2020 - Village Board awarded the Well 10 replacement bid to Path Construction Company. The well replacement of the treatment system and construction of a new well house was scheduled to begin after the well equipment rehabilitation was completed.

05/26/2020 - Midwest Well pulled the well and began the inspection process.

07/07/2020 - Village Board approved an amendment to the Well 10 rehabilitation contract with Midwest Well Services. After the initial well pull and inspection, the contractor identified deficiencies in the well casing, including a split in the casing and minor pitting.Staff discussed potential options with the construction engineer and contractor and found the best solution would be to install a stainless-steel liner. The installation of this liner will address the deficiencies identified in the well televising while also ensuring the well’s continued long-term production.

07/15/2020 - Path Construction Company began mobilization.

07/31/2020 - Demolition began this week. The liner for the well casing pipe is scheduled to be installed next week.
