^^^ HUNTLEY ^«*"sif(c VOLUME 6 — NUMBER 28 THURSDAY, OCTOBER ^ -il* PHONK: .¦<l2M9-ft6'ZI (any ttma) (If m. answer) 816-489 0998 / yiti'^^M^I SCHOOL FILE HUNTLEY HIGH SCHOOL HUNTLEY, ILL 6 PAGES MAILED AND DISTRIBUTED WEEKLT 7o PER COPI Village Board Meeting The tiny board room at the Huntley Villapre Hall was filled to overflowinK capacity last Thurs¬ day night at the Village Board meeting. There were so many spCc- tatores at the meeting that a few people had to be seated out in the hall. All members of the Board were present at the meeting. After the preliminary reading of minutes, treasurer's report and authoriza¬ tion to pay bills, President Wil¬ pault Brill presented a representa¬ tive of Baxter and Woodman En¬ gineering Co. (the village engine¬ ers) to the citizen.s of North Church Street who comprised the majority of the spectators in at¬ tendance. The engineer stated that the reason for the surface water flooding the Urbachs resi¬ dence was the fact that a 9 foot catch basin on the North side of Algonquin Blacktop road was blocked with dirt, grass and other debris, forcing the water to surge across the road into a 3-foot catch baain on the other side of the street which was inadequ^^ to handle the volume. The waP^ftien proceded to crash through the Urback's baaajtt^nt window...and into the Church Street suMivlsfon. He went on to sap that when the storm sewers were conH^ -;ted that are made in specified ^ -s to handle storm which occur on pro¬ jected 2, 10, 30 or 50 basis. Storms which occur on an average of every two years are more fre quent and smaller storm sewer would be adequate for them than for a storm which might occur every 10 or 20 years which would be more violent, the same being true of 30 and 50 year storm sewers. The lai'ger the sewer, the more expense for installation. The engineer stated that probably the Huntley storm sewers were the 10 year type of installation. The engineer went on to say that theoritically there should be no re¬ lation to the back-up of the sewers on Church Street and the rainfall, as the rain water i.s supposed to go into the storm sewers and not into the sanitary sewers. The storm sewers by-pass the sewage dispos¬ al plant. Mr. Percy Swanson, St. Superintendent, stated that when there is aheavy rain at times the the two pumps at the disposal plant are working to capacity and an emergency by-pass at the sewer plant had to be opened. The village engineer stated that this could only mean that water from gutters and downspouts must also be going in¬ to the sanitary sewers which is illegal under the village ordinance. This he went on to say would cause the back-up at the village disposal plant of the sewage in the sanitary sewers and since water seeks its own level, the back-up would flow into all the sanitary sewers in town to which down¬ spouts were connected and that flooding would occur at the lowest house in town which would be the Gruners. The drain spouts would not necessarily have to be attached oii Church 'Strget fiotl^es to tlte sanitary sewer system but through out the entire town in the older sections as well as the newer ones. The Village Board authorized the engineering firm of Baxter and Woodman to place smoke bombs in the sanitary sewer sys¬ tem. If smoke billows out of the drain pipes in any residence or business, the Village Board will give these people a certain amount of time to conform with the law. Some members of the board sug¬ gested the use of ping pong balls but the engineer pointed out that the smoke bomb method is much CONTINI'KD ON TACK THREK Luiherns Host Stnorgesthoard The Ladies Aid of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Huntley will spon.sor a Sin'>rga.sboard.
