Attention Community Park Residents!
The Wheaton Sanitary District is planning some work through our Community Park. The work includes the installation of a plastic liner to existing underground piping that directs wastewater from portions of Carol Stream and Wheaton to the Sanitary District’s Wastewater Treatment Plant.
During the week of July 12, the Wheaton Sanitary District is unloading supplies and getting set up to perform this work. They will be staging materials and equipment in Community Park’s parking area, and they may be driving through the park along the tree line from Thornhill Drive to access Gunderson Road with their equipment.
Starting July 19 and for at least two weeks, the Sanitary District contractors will be working on the pipes. We understand the process they are using does not require digging up pipes; however, the work is planned to take place 24 hours a day. Residents will see and hear the work, but the contractor uses every precaution to keep the noise down in the evening hours.
This project has been approved by DuPage County and the Village of Carol Stream. The Carol Stream Park District is not involved in this project, other than Community Park providing an area to stage materials and equipment during this part of the project.
This project is part of a much larger project of the Wheaton Sanitary District, called the Northside Interceptor (NSI) Sewer Replacement Project. Detailed information about this project may be found at Wheaton Sanitary District Northside Interceptor Project.
