Water Service Replacements

To connect new water main to existing water mains, temporary water shutdowns will be required. We will provide advance notice prior to shutdowns, and shutdowns will be as short as possible.

Existing water service lines (the connection to your home) within the project will be replaced. If the material of the water service has a lead gooseneck or galvanized steel, the entire water service will be replaced — from the water main in the street all the way to inside the home — at NO COST TO THE RESIDENT.

To allow this work, a permission form needs to be signed for each address getting their water service replaced.  Please see here for the form. Once completed, please email this form to dsorek@preinnewhof.com or you may take a picture of the form and text it to Dan Sorek at (616) 218-2940.

We are seeking contact information for scheduling these water services in a very tight time frame. Failure to allow access inside the home to replace the water service into the home will jeopardize the ability for the City of Muskegon Heights to continue providing water service to the home or property.
