Repair sewer line in basement of Shutt House (HS-17)
Jason Taylor, 217-391-3235
A sewer line under the concrete floor of the Shutt House (HS-17) basement is clogged and failing. It backs up when the toilet is flushed and causes sewage to back up into the basement through a floor drain. This project will require jackhammering the floor to gain access to the circa 1880s cast-iron pipe, replace the pipe with PVC pipe, refill hole in the floor with quikcrete, and removing the unnecessary floor drain that allowed the sewage into the basement.
