Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) of the water main began yesterday heading north on Indian from Beverly. This process involves pushing a reamer through the ground in the location that the new water main will go. Residents will most likely notice all the orange fencing in the front yards. These are the areas where the contractor exposed the existing storm, sanitary and water services, to ensure that they do not create a conflict with the new water main.
This process will continue into next week. The water main pipe was delivered today, and the contractor will be installing the pipe (pulling it into the tunnel) between Beverly and Wilmette on Monday.
Expect to see more workers on site starting Monday. Please be very cautious when driving though the site.
