MAPLE PARK—Maple Park Village Engineer Jeremy Lin on March 4 updated the Village Board on his progress with the water main leak beneath Liberty Street. Lin provided the board with many possible outcomes, including best-case and worst-case scenarios.

“First, it’s important to get in there and diagnose the problem,” said Lin, “We need to do some exploratory excavation.”

The best-case scenario would be that the leak is easily repairable and no part of the railroad would have to be altered; in this case the cost would be about $2,500, which is after the $7,500 for exploratory excavation. The worst-case scenario is that the casing on the water main cannot be repaired; in this case it could cost the village around $22,000. Lin said he expects the project to be underway by April.
