Progress Report:

Dean’s has made good progress on installing water main between Northland Drive and the White Pine Trail over the last two weeks. Dean’s worked with the City of Rockford earlier this week to pressure test and disinfect the first section of new water main. Dean’s plans to complete the connection to the existing water main at 12 Mile and Northland on Friday. Water service installation is scheduled for the first section of main near the east end of 12 Mile. Dean’s will pause water main installation until they can install the water service stubs toward each house.

Midwest Trenchless has been making progress on the horizontal directional drill under the Rogue River. The HDPE water main (black pipe) has been fused together along the side of 12 Mile Road. Midwest Trenchless has successfully drilled their pilot bore from the west side of the river to Serenity Shores. It is anticipated that it will take a week of reaming to open the pilot hole to a large enough diameter to be able to pull the pipe through. Midwest Trenchless will continue to work on opening the drill hole over the next week.
