Attention residents of the Eighth Addition, Palms Book, Ishpeming Hills, and all businesses along US 41 and Country Village: water system flushing will begin tomorrow (Wednesday, September 6th) in the Eighth Addition and progress south and east.

Next week will continue towards downtown along Second and Third Streets.

Some discoloration may occur during this time as sediment is stirred up that has accumulated in the system. The object of flushing is to clear the majority of this sediment out of the system. Unfortunately, sediment can also accumulate in your private service line and internal plumbing. System flushing can aggitate the sediment in your service line also. We recommend flushing your own pipes through an unfiltered tap or spigot for a few minutes until the water clears up.

No boil advisories will be issued as part of this important preventive maintenance work. Finally, we do not recommend doing laundry while flushing is occuring in your neighborhood as the sediments in our system are high in iron and could stain your laundry.

We intend to finish the Eighth Addition and Palms Book before proceeding toward Country Village and Ishpeming Hills.


9-1-17 Water Improvement Project Update – Lakeshore Drive

Posted on

The updated plan is to tie the water main under Lakeshore Drive into Cliff Street on Wednesday September 6th.  This will require a single lane closure of the northbound lane.  Flag control will be in effect.

The road will be restored to gravel the same day.  Paving is anticipated to occur in the Sept 13-15 range.  We will provide additional updates as that date is solidified.

Gravel will be prepped under single lane closure the day prior to paving, the paving will occur under single lane closure as well.  All lane closures will include flag control.



8-31-17 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE – Valve Replacements

Posted on

8-31-17 CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: There will be localized water outages on Thursday, August 31st for valve replacements at the intersection of High and Oak Streets. The attached map shows what is anticipated to be the maximum impacted area. Specifically, OAK STREET from ELY to EMPIRE and PINE STREET (west side only) from HIGH to EMPIRE.

There is a chance that impacts could extend to the “20 houses” area (EMPIRE west of OAK) if one valve doesn’t hold. Otherwise, we are fairly confident the impact area will be limited to the couple blocks indicated above.

We promise the impacts caused now will reduce impacts later in the event of an emergency water main repair. Thank you for your patience as we complete these greatly needed water system improvements.

Work is scheduled to begin at approximately 8 am with water restored no later than 4 pm. Please plan accordingly by filling water storage containers for consumption, toilet flushing, etc.

**UPDATE** Work continues in the northbound lane of Lakeshore Drive. This work will extend the single lane closures through the end of the day on Monday, August 21st.
