    Installing an overhead sewer is definitely an essential basement flood control measure to take to preserve one's property and peace of mind, but other measures may often also be required.

    Older houses in the Chicago area typically lack adequate flood control systems. Twenty years of experience with our pre-WWII house have convinced me that there is no single surefire way to prevent water from getting into a basement (except by buying a house that doesn't have one:)

    Over the years, in our quest for a dry basement, we have installed an overhead sewer system, ejector pump, backup sump pump, standby generator, and an interior French drain system, painted the basement walls with a water sealant, rebuilt a chimney, disconnected downspouts from the sewer line and poured concrete to block up a drain in the basement floor.

    We believe all the measures that we have taken have helped to keep our basement reasonably dry, but I wouldn't be willing to bet there will never be any more water on the basement floor. If too much of it falls from the sky in too short a period of time, it will somehow find a way in.

Gas Main Problems in East Beverly

Isn't it time to find out why the water dept/sub contractors are hitting gas mains? There is enough paint all over marking clearly where the line are. There have been several gas leaks that neighbors have called on and they come right out to fix it. It seems as if no one is paying attention to the fact that this is NOT People Gas that is creating the problem but rather the water department or its subs contractors. I wonder now how many leaks were the fault of the gas company or has it been the sub contractors all along.

  • When looking at this site, at the bottom it has digger members and each utility is listed so I am assuming that if something is being checked it is each agency that is doing it. I do believe when they were marking our street, the Gas Company marked the sites...

    When looking at this site, at the bottom it has digger members and each utility is listed so I am assuming that if something is being checked it is each agency that is doing it. I do believe when they were marking our street, the Gas Company marked the sites of the gas. We were out there for a while with them and they seemed to be very careful(by communicating with each other and the measuring and going down the sewer covers in the street). I have heard the water department is contracted out and they were the ones that hit the line.

CN100 Game of the Week preview: Catholic League Championship - Brother Rice vs. Loyola Academy

CHICAGO – The one advantage enjoyed by teams in the Chicago Catholic League and the Chicago Public League is that if their season in the IHSA playoffs ends, it doesn’t necessarily spell the end of their seasons.
With the Prep Bowl, a Chicago tradition for decades looming around Thanksgiving, seasons are extended for the lucky few. Brother Rice and Loyola find themselves in that position Friday at 7 p.m. in the Chicago Catholic League Championship. The game will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, and 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 24. You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
The winner will face either Curie or Hubbard in the Prep Bowl next week.
Brother Rice (7-4) recovered from a 24-21 loss to defending Class 8A state champion Naperville Central in the first round of the IHSA playoffs with a 41-0 win over DePaul Prep to advance to this game. The Crusaders beat Loyola 16-13 in the first meeting.
Senior QB Alex Alarcon is a two-way threat offensively, passing for 2,294 yards, 18 TDs and 10 INTs. He’s also rushed for 651 yards and nine scores. His top target in the pass game is sophomore Ricky Smalling (64 catches, 880 yards, 9 TD).
Loyola (9-3) also drew a tough IHSA playoff route, falling to the state’s top team, Stevenson 24-21 in the second round. A second win over St. Rita 31-3 put the Ramblers in the Catholic League title game.
Passing duties have been split three ways, but senior DJ Melsheimer is expected to start Friday. He’ll be looking for seniors Owen Buscaglia (56 catches, 789 yards, 11 TD) and Spencer Cecola (37 catches, 469 yards, 6 TD).
The backbone of the Ramblers’ offense comes on the ground. Junior Dara Laja leads the way with 923 yards and 5 TDs.
