Progress Report

This week:
  • West Michigan Tree Services began tree clearing within the Packer Drive public right-of-way.
  • Water main materials showed up on site and are staged in the Township baseball diamond parking lot just south of Las Vegas Drive.
  • Packer Drive was pulverized where road removal will be necessary to install the water main.
  • The dewatering system was set up beginning of the week and the dewatering treatment system was set up on Thursday. The dewatering treatment system will be tested today to ensure it is working properly.
Next week:
  • Dean’s will begin water main construction on Packer Drive, starting at Las Vegas Drive.
  • Dean’s will install water main up to the south side of the Rogue River, skip the river crossing, and begin installing water main on the north side of the river again.

 

In the coming weeks you will receive a letter explaining necessary steps you must take to have the private portion of your water service installed. If you have any questions about this process, please reach out to Jeremy Kamp (see contact information to the right).

Please contact any project representative below if you have questions or concerns.
