Localized water main shutdowns planned for Thursday and Friday
Two water main shutdowns are planned in the western area of downtown Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26. This is limited to a small area and is in preparation of the planned Dinan Park.
The two planned shutdowns are:
Friday, May 26: The water main in the parking lot just west of Farmington Road, south of Grand River, will be shut down for the contractor, Warren Contractors, to complete a new connection to the City’s water supply system. This shutdown is anticipated to begin at 7 a.m. and last until 3 p.m.
1. West Parking Lot Water Main Shutdown (lot behind Heights Brewing):
Thursday, May 25: Water service construction will take place in the parking lot just west of Farmington Road, south of Grand River. This will briefly affect the water services of Sipp, the business space of the old Motown Philly restaurant, Kitchen Master, and Beyond Salon from about 7 – 11 a.m.
In preparation for the water shutdowns, we recommend using a bucket of water to flush your toilet(s) as needed. Please notify one of the contacts below if your water service is out beyond these hours. There is a possibility that some sediment may be stirred up in the existing water services when the water is turned back on. If your water is cloudy or there is sediment, you may need to clean your screens at sink faucets, or flush cold water through a large fixture until it clears up. If the problem persists, please contact one of the contacts below so the problem can be assessed.
2. Farmington Road Water Main Shutdown:
Thursday, May 25: The water main on Farmington Road between State Street and the area between Wina’s and Sipp will be shut down for the contractor to complete a new connection to the City’s water supply system west of Farmington Road. This shutdown is anticipated to begin at 7 and last until 11 am.
Keep children and pets away from the construction operation. Construction activities, and the associated equipment that goes with it, is attractive to small children and can be dangerous. Please keep children away from the equipment, removals, mass grading, underground utility installation, hot/fresh asphalt, and wet concrete.
If you have any specific questions regarding this shutdown, please call the City Public Works Department at (248) 473-7250, Mr. David Sumlin, Construction Inspector for OHM at (734) 891-2446, or Mr. Austin Downie, Engineer for OHM at (734) 466-4437.
We understand the inconvenience this may cause, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation. We will make every effort to minimize the duration of the shutdown and restore water services as quickly as possible.
