Water Meter Replacement
The Village of Tinley Park has hired United Meters, Inc. to replace about 15,000 Severn-Trent/Elster water meters in town with Sensus iPERL water meters.

[Update Nov. 3, 2016]: The first batch of letters from UMI to residents was delivered to the Post Office Nov. 1. UMI plans to have a crew begin installation tasks Nov. 8. Meters that have radios are generating data and alarms, and Public Works has directed its staff to inform customers of instances where there are active leak alarms. Public Works staff are installing meters and radios. During October, more than 250 meters were replaced. The antenna, base station and servers are all communicating with each other.

Parkside Drainage Improvements
The Village of Tinley Park recently awarded a $705,366 contract to H. Linden & Sons of Plano, IL to upgrade the existing storm sewer along Glenview Drive, Ravinia Drive and Pine Point Drive between Elm Lane and Riverside Drive with new 12- to 36-inch storm sewer under the pavement and in the parkway. This improvement is expected to improve drainage in that neighborhood during heavy rainfall by increasing the amount of rainfall the system can convey.

Because construction has progressed ahead of schedule on Glenview and Ravinia, work is scheduled to begin on Phase Two on Pinepoint Drive the week of October 24 (weather permitting). All restoration work in the parkway (curb and gutter, sidewalk, pavement restoration and grass) that is disturbed will be completed by Dec. 1, 2016.

Tree Replacement Program
In response to the thousands of trees lost to the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle, the Village hired Beary Landscaping, Inc. from Lockport, Ill. to implement a comprehensive tree planting program to provide more than 10,000 trees over the course of three years.

[Update Nov. 30, 2016]: The Fall 2016 planting season has ended. The total number of trees installed so far is 948 for the season and 8,989 since the program began in 2014. Beary also planted 744 warranty replacement trees this season. Beary expects to resume planting in April 2017 for the sixth and final planting season of this program. Regular updates will resume at that time.
