WHEATON, IL, Sept. 8, 2010 -- RJN Group Inc. (RJN) was recently chosen to provide engineering design services to construct replacement water main on Addison Road from Potter Street to Elizabeth Drive for the City of Wood Dale. The project will comprise approximately 3,000 linear feet of new water main.

RJN will conduct a topographic survey to collect the horizontal and vertical locations for each element including curb and gutter, driveways, sidewalks, trees, large shrubs, utilities, inverts for storm and sanitary sewer, depth of water main at valve locations, and ground elevations. Control points and benchmarks from the topographic survey that can be used during construction will also be established.

The new water main will have a wider capacity, going from a 6-inch or 8-inch to a 12-inch water main. The final deliverable will provide Wood Dale with a set of plans, specifications and an opinion of probable construction costs for water main replacement. The engineering project began in July 2010 with permit applications to IEPA being submitted in October 2010.

RJN provides civil engineering consulting services for clients and their facilities. The firm's offerings include the study, design, and construction management of wastewater, water, stormwater, roadway, buildings, and bridge infrastructures.
