UPDATE 11/25/19: It has been a busy week for the Monee Water Well House project. Contractors have been on site all week installing the underground water main, valve vaults, and hydrants. The open cut along Countyfair Dr. has been repaired with asphalt and the framed up the curbs and sidewalk will be poured during the week of 11/25. Gaskill and Walton has been working on the siding for the Well House building and excavating for the electric service.

Update: G&W has installed the roof trusses, sheeting, and shingles on the well house building. They also met with ComEd to coordinate the installation of the electric service to the site. The contractor is starting the installation of the underground water main and sanitary service. This will be going on all next week. CBI is planning to start erecting the elevated tank structure in December.

The bricklayers have been working on the exterior brick and should be completed soon.The roof trusses have been delivered and Gaskill and Walton will be installing them and plan to have the building under roof as soon as possible. The underground utilities have been staked and the contractor plans on starting within the next few days on the water main installation.

Gaskill and Walton poured the Well House floor. The bricklayers were also on site mobilizing their equipment and supplies. They spent the rest of the week building the block walls which should be completed by the end of the day today. G&W has been here off and on setting rebar for the walls, door frames, and making lintels.

WF Johnston has been here all week working on the Water Tower foundation walls. Rebar was installed and forms were set earlier this week and the foundation wall was poured yesterday. All of the sleeves for the water main, electric service, and communication conduits are in place. They are stripping forms today and getting ready for some pipe installation and back-filling next week.

This week, Gaskill and Walton poured the footings and foundation walls for the well house building.Concord Excavating is on site today installing the water service and finish water sample lines into the building. They are also bringing in several loads of stone for the driveway and parking area which should eliminate any chance of mud tracking like we had earlier this week. All of the contractors are on board with the approved truck route. G&W are installing interior piping to the proper locations so the can start back-filling the building foundation with stone. They plan to pour the floor next week. Concord Excavating informed me that they will start digging for the water tower foundation next Tuesday.
