Construction is set to begin next month on a water main extension in the southwest corner of Carol Stream that will connect a school and other properties to the village's water system.

The $1.7 million project, near North Avenue and St. Charles and Fair Oaks roads, has taken almost five years to get off the ground because of delays with permitting and property acquisitions for rights of way and easements, village officials said.

They say the new "looped" system will result in more reliable service.

The village recently acquired the final two easements for the project that will allow construction to start next month. Construction is expected to finish in August.

The new water main will connect with the existing water main at McCaslin Park. It will go west on North, west on St. Charles, north through Benjamin Middle School's property, west on Trieste Lane, north on Fair Oaks, to Tall Oaks Drive.

Another segment just to the north runs along Fair Oaks from Violet Street to Lies Road, and extends east to connect with an existing water main on the west side of Corpus Christi Catholic Church.

This week, the village board approved a $1.23 million contract with RA Mancini of Prairie Grove for the construction work. The additional $478,240 in project costs are for design study and engineering work, property acquisitions, an already completed section near McCaslin Park, a Wayne Township Road District restoration fee and construction administration costs.

The project will be funded through a $1.9 million rebate the village received from the DuPage Water Commission.
