Work completed so far:

  • New Water main pipe has been installed on the east side of Warner near the sidewalk from Slocum south to Alice Street
  • New Water Main has been tested and we are awaiting results of the disinfection tests
  • Driveways approaches south of Muskegon Avenue on the east side Warner are being removed in preparation for the next leg of water main installation

 

What to expect week of April 22, 2024:

  • Connection of the new water main to the existing system – This will likely take place at Slocum and Warner to energize the new water main.
  • Water Services will begin to be cut over to the new water main between Alice and Slocum
  • Water Main connections will take place at Sophia and Warner and then at Alice and Warner

 

What to expect week of April 29, 2024:

  • Complete any remaining connections to the new water main between Alice and Slocum
  • Begin new water main installation between Muskegon Avenue and Benston Street on the east side of Warner Street

 

Please note: When water is shut off for water main connections – the water is safe to drink!  However, it may be discolored after water is restored. This is due to rust in the old water system or from internal plumbing pipes getting dislodged and entering the water. To flush any discolored water, it is recommended to flush COLD water from a bath tub or outside spigot – any tap that does not have an aerator that may trap any particles. It is also a good idea to remove and clean aerators periodically, especially after nearby water main construction. If the water is cloudy, this is due to air in the line and it will return to normal after a few minutes.
