Through Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Building a New Chicago infrastructure improvement program, the Department of Water Management (DWM) is installing a new water main in your area on
Project No: 1801112
- ON W MELROSE ST FROM N ASHLAND AVE TO N SOUTHPORT AVE
By signing up for these notifications on the buildinganewchicago.org website you will be kept informed on the progress of this project.
Construction crews have begun preparing the site for the water main installation, including the location and marking of other utility services. You will notice construction equipment and materials placed in your area. The project will consist of several phases over the coming weeks.
Once the new water main has been installed, the new pipe will be pressurized, disinfected with chlorine and tested. We will then begin the process of switching services from the old main to the new main. During that transfer period you will be without water for a few hours. Your building will receive a handout notifying you when your water service will be temporarily interrupted prior to the service transfer.
