Finally, something got done. Apparently, CDoT (Chicago Department of Transportation) had a moratorium on permits for street work over the New Year, so that was the primary cause of delay (this time). The plumbers also said their sub-contractor’s plumbing license with the City had expired and they were trying to resolve that, but they eventually wound up hiring a different company. Either way, the sewer repair work in the street has been completed as of about an hour ago. Presumably that means now the city will come out and re-inspect the sewer line to confirm that everything looks good so it can be re-lined.

The biggest frustration is that from a permit perspective, this work probably could have been done back in December. I’m still not entirely sure why it wasn’t. Instead the street work permit expired and getting a new one took over a month. In the mean time I need to clean up the weeping trench, since it’s a bit of a mess where the new water service comes in.
