FRONT STREET PROJECT UPDATE:
To the residents, businesses and/or building owners of Front Street between Walnut Street and Central Street.
I wanted to give you an update in reference to the water line replacement. Replacement for the water main and service lines will begin October 25th, 2021. The City has contracted Pipco Companies to install the water main and service lines. Pipco will begin by cutting the blacktop and cement where the water line will be installed. The water main will be installed and then the service lines. They will begin on Walnut St. and work east towards Central St. Once the water main is installed, they will then install the service lines to each building.
The goal will be to notify all owners 48 hours in in advance of when their service line will be installed. The connection for the new service line the water should only be off for 30 to 60 minutes. Pipco plans to install three service lines a day. All building owners/tenants need to call El Paso City Hall at (309)527-4005 and make sure the City has the correct information in order to contact them when access is needed to install the service line. The access will be one of the most important parts of this construction job. As a city we want to make sure we don’t hold up the company due to not having access to a building.
The new service line will only be installed in a building that has water lines that run from Front St.
If you have any questions or concerns in reference to the construction, please call the Director of Public Service at (630)299-9901 or (309)527-4005.
