WATER MAIN EXTENSION APPROVED
At its September meeting the Spring Arbor Township board approved an extension of the municipal water system from Dearing Road to Wakefield Court. The expected cost is $46,600. OMM Engineering of Grand Rapids (Township engineers) provided the engineering for the project and will oversee construction, and Mead Brothers of Springport will handle the construction.
This extension addresses a system weakness noted by the MDEQ in their last review. Although there has never been a service interruption to the “village” area (rough boundaries being Henderson, Richard, Mathews, and Carter) of the Township, this extension will provide a second source of water for the “village”. Additionally, there will be a marginal increase in water availability during heavy usage periods.
It is expected that work will begin the week of October 15, 2013 and will continue approximately four (4) weeks.
