The main crew will strip topsoil along Tripoli and Tripoli Ct between Burger and Tuscany and begin placing the new watermain in that location.

 

April 12, 2023

Crews began work on the installation of the watermain on Monday working west from the Burger and Goodwood intersection. The contractor will continue to move west down Burger in the coming days.  Crews then expect to begin work on installation of the watermain on Cimarron and Tripoli next.

A second crew is anticipated to be on site next week to begin preparation for the watermain crossing the Burger bayou.

As a reminder, if residents have specific companies that they use for irrigation, landscaping or repairs to any underground fencing, they are encouraged to send the name and contact information to goodwoodwater@gmail.com.

The general contractor has notified the City/Township of their intention to begin work on April 10, 2023.  Residents should be aware that construction equipment and materials may begin arriving on-site when frost laws have been lifted, which is expected to be during the week of March 27th.

Construction is slated to start at the Burger Dr/Goodwood Dr intersection and work NW toward the bayou crossing. A general schedule is shown below, but residents should be aware that weather, site conditions, and crew productivity can often affect schedules on projects such as this.

Water service placement in areas located adjacent to existing water main is ongoing. Plumbing companies are also quoting connections for residents in Phase I. If you have not done so already, please reach out to one or both of the two pre-qualified plumbing companies about connecting to municipal water.

If residents have specific companies that they use for irrigation, landscaping, or repairs to any underground fencing, they are encouraged to send the name and contact information to goodwoodwater@gmail.com.

The Contractor has notified parties that water main installation will not commence until late winter/early spring of 2023. A proposed schedule will be posted once it has been received and reviewed.

Water service placement in areas located adjacent to existing water main is ongoing. If you have not done so already, please reach out to one or both of the two pre-qualified plumbing companies about connecting to municipal water.

The watermain installation project is still slated to begin in September. However, the tree removals are expected to begin next Monday (August 1st) and the crews anticipate they will complete all the tree removals planned for Phase I. Trees currently scheduled for removal are flagged with a pink or yellow ribbon.

The City of Grand Rapids has approved two plumbing companies to complete the installation of water services between the watermain by the road and your basement. The contact information is listed below, as is a process of how the work is expected to be completed.

gthumser@mcdonaldplumbing.com

BRIK Plumbing
Attn: Kraig Keegstra

Current Status:

Watermain construction is currently scheduled to begin in September, pending water main material delivery. Prior to the water main being installed, trees within the public road rights-of-way will be cleared as necessary. This contract will construct the water main along the road and water service stubs toward each house. You will receive more information regarding connecting your water service from the stub into your house at a later date.

Water main will generally be installed along the west or north sides of streets. There will be short periods of time when water main is being installed in front of your houses and your driveway will be inaccessible. The contractor will work to restore driveways as soon as possible during the day and will ensure that all driveways are accessible by the end of the workday. Caution is advised while driving through the project area. For the safety of all residents and construction crews, we ask that residents be mindful of construction areas at all times throughout the project area.

The private side contract, which will install the service from the roadway to each house, is currently being reviewed and will be before the Grand Rapids City Commission in early July. It is expected that the list of pre-approved plumbers will be available to residents in mid-July whereupon residents in Phase I can begin contacting plumbers to get property specific plumbing quotes.
