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] State Street Sanitary Sewer Project Begins July 6

The original item was published from June 30, 2020 5:01 PM to December 17, 2020 1:56 PM

Construction is scheduled to start Monday, July 6 to replace 300 feet of sanitary sewer on West State Street (Route 38) in downtown Geneva.

Work operations on the City project will be done overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday nights on the outside westbound lane of State Street from First Street (Route 31) to River Lane. Westbound traffic will be reduced to one lane overnight and reopened during the day. Some pavement restoration will be done during daytime hours.

Parking will be prohibited on the north side of State Street between First Street and River Lane. The project is being done overnight - and at the same time as IDOT's State Street bridge resurfacing - to minimize the inconvenience for motorists and local businesses. The City's sanitary sewer installation is expected to last 10 days, weather permitting.

The City's Public Works Department Engineering Division staff will be on site during construction, which will be performed by the LUC Group. For more information, call the City's Public Works Department Water Division at 630-232-1551.
