Update on Lathrup Village Fire Hydrant Replacements/Refurbishing:

Hydrants – Sunde Building (contractor) has completed Phase 1 of the hydrant repairs (3 total).

Plans to replace hydrants today (5/7) – no water to be shut off, but some residents may experience some brown water:

  • San Jose and Rackham
  • Sunset Blvd and Wiltshire
  • Avilla Blvd and Lathrup Blvd
  • Glenwood Blvd at Lathrup Blvd

DISCOLORED WATER NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:

Occupants in the area may experience discolored water for several hours after the repair has been completed.

Brown, rusty water is caused by iron and other materials stirred up in the water mains. This is most often caused by a water main break or annual maintenance. If you are experiencing this problem:

  • Turn on the COLD-water faucet at the lowest level of your home (nearest the water meter) and let the COLD-water run for approximately 10 minutes.
  • This should clean out the residue in your service line, and clear the problem.
  • The water is safe to drink, but do not wash whites, since they will discolor. 
  • Flush the water lines that feed the washing machine and dishwasher by running each through one cycle before using.
  • Empty and clean automatic ice makers.

GARBAGE PICKUP

  • Monday. May 3rd  - regular service
  • The following Monday(s) –Tringali Trucks will still be able to make it down the street We are working with Tringali on identifying “corners” where residents can leave their containers when the garbage trucks can’t get through. We are advising residents to be prepared to not put out their trash containers in weeks 2 and 3 of construction, just in case the trucks can’t get through.

BRANCH CHIPPING –We are asking residents on the roads under construction to NOT put out tree branches for the chipping service on Friday’s, until the construction is completed.

MAIL – the Post Office has advised that they will AUTOMATICALLY HOLD mail for any streets under construction. Residents can pick up their mail at the Lathrup Village Post Office (28211 Southfield Road) during their regular hours of operation. For additional information, call 800.275.8777

PARKING – During the same two (2) to three (3) week period when the road will be closed, residents will need to seek alternate parking locations as they will not have access to their street or driveway. The City Police Department will be patrolling the alternate parking areas more often during construction and will not ticket vehicles parked in the road overnight.

Lawn Irrigation Systems - Property Owners who have irrigation systems located within ten (10) feet of the edge of the roadway should mark the location of any sprinkler heads so they are not damaged during construction. The City requests that these portions of your irrigation system be temporarily turned off during construction.

Lawns & Landscaping - All lawns impacted by construction will be restored and landscaped by the Contractor at the end of construction. The Contractor will be required to water the lawn for 2 weeks after which it will be the resident’s responsibility to water.
