“State of Michigan Lead and Copper Rules require local water providers to investigate water service connections”

 “The State of Michigan Lead and Copper Rules have resulted in substantial unfunded mandates, one of which is the requirement of local governments to determine if water service lines from the city service stop box to residential home water meters are connected to city water service via lead or copper pipes.  This process is identified as a Water Service Investigation, and randomly selected home and business water service lines will be investigated. If your property was selected, your participation in this program is required by State statute, and you will receive notification no less than two days prior to the City’s contractor, Underground Infrastructure Services, LLC (UIS), visiting your property, which includes a need for access to your water meter. Homes that are selected for the “Water Service Investigation” will see members of USI, who must have proper identification, drill two small holes in the property front yard adjacent to the water service stop box. These small holes will be approximately 12-inches in diameter, drilled down about five feet. The holes will be backfilled and restored with topsoil and grass seed.

 Selected homes interior water service meters will also be investigated for lead and copper materials, and the UIS team members can either be given access to the home for the investigation or the homeowner can photograph, as instructed, the water meter connections on each side of the water meter. If you were selected, detailed instructions will be included in the notification letter delivered to your home prior to the scheduled investigation.

 Please see the below list of streets and timelines for the investigations on those streets.  Again, if your home was selected you will receive notification by letter at your home approximately two days prior to the scheduled investigation.

 Your cooperation regarding this State of Michigan mandated requirement is appreciated.
