ERA completed site inspections and condition reviews of approximately 25 bridges and 150 culvert structures for the proposed new wind farm development. The purpose of these inspections was to identify poor structure conditions that would prevent the safe travel of the heavy construction equipment and materials used to construct the wind farm. With assistance from Douglas County, ERA reviewed existing design drawings to determine the load carrying capacity of each structure, helping lay out the proposed path of travel for the developer.

ERA participated in the Conservation Foundation's Adopt-A-Stream Clean Up along the West Branch of the DuPage River from Ogden Ave. to Jefferson St. in Naperville this weekend. The recent flooding in the area didn't manage to wipe out all of the trash since our group was still able to get quite a few bags worth collected! Thanks to all of the dedicated ERA staff and their families that joined us for the event!

This past month ERA's own Nick Varchetto participated in his first Washington, DC Fly In with the Underground Contractors Association's Emerging Leaders Group. The group joined forces with the Clean Water Construction Coalition for Water Week 2019 to promote federal legislation that improves water and wastewater infrastructure.
The big push on the agenda, while meeting with the congressional representatives : Danny Davis (IL-D), Michael Bost (IL-R), Rodney Davis (IL-R), Dan Lipinski (IL-D), & Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-D), was to express support and give testimony on why authorizing and appropriating HR 1497 (The Clean Water SRF) to the tune of $4 billion dollars, not only benefits construction jobs and the economy, but also helps protect all local citizens who utilize public water sources. Since the 1980’s, the State Revolving Funds (SRF - a loan program by the federal government to the states) has trickled to the lowest funding it has ever been. With infrastructure at a grade level “D”, it is paramount to inform our representatives that funding be put back on track so that we can provide safe water infrastructure for everyone.
