Sewer Testing in Backyards

The City has contracted with Midwest Water Group LLC to evaluate sanitary sewers that are in backyard easements this week. This acoustic testing process evaluates the sewer pipes for their condition and ranks them according to their need for cleaning and further evaluation. Should a crew need to access a manhole in your backyard, the City appreciates your cooperation in providing access and pet control as needed. More information is available on the City’s website

Bike Signs to be Installed Soon

The City of Wheaton will soon be a friendlier place for bicyclists. You will soon see directional signs, mile marker signs and much more once the Bikeway Signage Program is completed. Crews contracted by the City will install the signs citywide between now and early December.  Read more on the City’s website.
