Basement Connection

The Village of Elm Grove has utilized the MMSD private property program to tackle two areas in the Village that have been historically prone to basement issues during wet weather events. The Village completed an investigative project in the Elmhurst Parkway and the Circle Drive areas where the sanitary laterals were televised and home perimeter evaluations were conducted to identify pathways for clear water to enter the home and ultimately the sanitary system. Of the 78 properties evaluated, 37 properties were identified as needing rehabilitation to reduce the clear water entry to the sewer system during wet weather. Cured in place pipe (CIPP) lining of the sanitary laterals was performed on most of the 37 properties. Some defects were serious enough to warrant entire replacement of the lateral.
