Powering Up

Power Restored
Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable electric service to our residents and businesses. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on the our website homepage. Customers can subscribe to receive these updates via Notify Me.

[ARCHIVED] South Street Sanitary Sewer Projects On Tap

The original item was published from November 12, 2019 4:58 PM to July 31, 2020 3:05 PM

South Street Sanitary Sewer Project
The City will be repairing three sections of sanitary sewer on South Street near the Geneva Public Works Department, 1800 South St.

Starting weekdays from Thursday, Nov. 14 to Monday, Nov. 18, traffic will be reduced to one lane from Southampton Drive to Sheila Lane to accommodate the construction. The roadway will be reopened each night (and throughout the weekend) before construction resumes the following day. Performance Construction & Engineering, the City's contractor, will be conducting the repair project.

The goal is to complete one repair project a day, weather permitting.

South Street Culvert Crossing
The South Street culvert crossing, located near Southampton Drive, will remain closed during the sanitary sewer projects.

The City is anticipating opening all lanes and the bridge deck on South Street Tuesday, Nov. 19, construction and weather permitting. While the project will be substantially completed, road striping and other ancillary work will still need to take place.

South Street between Burgess Road and Southampton Drive has been closed since Aug. 9 for safety reasons after a sinkhole was discovered by the City. Engineering work took place during September, and demolition began Oct. 17 followed by construction of the new deck.
