Village of Winnetka
The Water & Electric Department will be performing thermography inspections of the Village’s overhead power lines, distribution centers, switchgear and select transformer sites. Thermography is a non-destructive test method that may be used to detect poor connections, unbalanced loads, deteriorated insulation, or other potential problems. Work is scheduled to begin on July 17th and last approximately two weeks.
The Water and Electric Department is distributing a survey via mail to residential and commercial water customers to update our records regarding cross connections and backflow devices that are connected to the Village’s potable water system. Please keep an eye out for the survey, completing it at your earliest convenience.
