Progress Report:

Over the last couple of months, the private water service contractors have made great progress installing water service lines into individual houses and abandoning existing drinking water wells. See map above for the progress that has been made. Only a few houses along Summit Avenue remain to be connected.

Dean’s Excavating plans to be back on site along 12 Mile Road beginning the first week of April. This first week they will move equipment on site and start setting up for construction. They will be assembling the HDPE pipe in preparation for the directional drill under the Rogue River. Tree stumps will be ground and topsoil removed in preparation for water main construction to begin the following week. Dean’s horizontal directional drill (HDD) subcontractor, Midwest Trenchless, will begin the directional drill work at the Rogue River the second week of April, and Dean’s will begin installing water main along 12 Mile Road from Northland Drive to the west.

There may be temporary driveway impacts for houses north of 12 Mile Road, but Dean’s will work with you to limit these impacts as much as possible.

The new water main along 12 Mile Road should be ready for water service connections beginning in early May. If you have not already lined up the private side work with one of the three preapproved contractors, it is recommended that you do this as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the private water service installation, please call Jeremy Kamp with Prein&Newhof at (616) 432-6709.
