The University awarded a contract for water pipe repair.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
On April 27, 2013, the Physical Plant Office was notified of a water break around Lecture Center D located at 804 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL. . An emergency service call was placed to J.S.R. Enterprises. A three person crew was mobilized as well as a combination backhoe machine with hydraulic breaker and equipment trucks to investigate the problem. They had to cut and break out sections of sidewalk and excavate down to the 4” water service piping, encountering various utilities which had to be bypassed by hand. The 4” water service was severely decayed and leaking in two separate areas. Two 12” long stainless steel repair clamps were installed to provide a temporary fix until they return to replace the damaged section of piping. The vendor is scheduled to return on Saturday, May 4th at which time the amount of pipe needing to be replaced will be determined. The cost to date is approximately $6,000.00.
