Elburn to raise manholes for better sewer-line access
The village of Elburn will raise seven manholes on South Street at a cost of approximately $2,000. The manholes provide access to the sewer line that moves storm water from the area of Route 47 and South Street and from portions of Cambridge subdivision.
The manholes are buried under eight to 24 inches of soil. Raising the manholes to grade level or just above will allow public works staff and contractors to locate them more easily and protect them from possible damage from farm machinery, said Elburn public works superintendent John Nevenhoven.
