Tolono board chooses option for water line repairs

TOLONO — The village will spend $6,690 to fix a problem caused by a frozen water line on Main Street.

During February's subzero temperatures, a 1-inch water line that extends from Bourne Street eastward froze, disrupting water service to the customers on the line, including the east side fire station. As a temporary solution, an above-ground line was looped about 200 feet to the west and tied into a meter pit to backfeed the residences.

On Tuesday, the board considered a proposal with a few options from Stewart and Stewart Inc. of Tolono to provide a more permanent solution. Board members chose an option that involved excavating two gas services and meter pits at each end, trying to find a drain tile, boring from meter pit to meter pit and making connections on both ends.

Money from the project will come from $10,000 budgeted in the village's general fund.
