Gibson City to seek bids for sewer project

GIBSON CITY — Wood Street storm sewer separation project bids will soon be solicited.

Superintendent Randy Stauffer said the mild winter will allow work to start earlier than anticipated. The project is expected to take 30 to 60 days and will be supervised by Donahue and Associates of Champaign.

Another upcoming project already in the city's budget is rebuilding the men's restroom at the North Park. Stauffer said the weather is giving city workers time to do the project rather than hiring a contractor.

A water main break last week on the south end of town discolored water and caused many residents to call, according to Alderman John Carlson, who chairs the Water and Sewer Committee.

Stauffer said workers noticed the loss of water on Feb. 4, but it took until the evening of the next day for the water leak to show on the surface.

Changes in temperature and electrical issues also hampered the repair, but clear water with good flow has been restored, Stauffer said.
