Project Description: Cicero had a failing water system in the Hidden Bay neighborhood. The system was old and leaking and in some cases installed below or immediately adjacent to resident’s homes. As the watermain experienced breaks, town personnel performed hand excavations to complete repairs, which resulted in unsafe conditions for workers and residents. United assisted the town with the OCRA grant pursuit. After successfully receiving the grant, United designed improvements to replace approximately 2,400 feet of watermain with appurtenances, which relocated the system to the road right-of-way where it could be safely maintained.
Approximate Project Cost: $600,000
