Residents of Woodbury Street:

Construction of a water main and sanitary sewer extension to service the Glengary Elementary School will begin soon. Water main will be installed along the west side of the road and sanitary sewer will be installed along the east side of the road. The project is being paid for by the Walled Lake Consolidated Schools and is being managed by Commerce Township through their engineering consultant, Giffels Webster.

The contractor will be directionally drilling the utility extensions to minimize disruption to the area. Several manholes will need to be installed along the route and there will be some disturbed areas. Part of the contract is to restore all disturbed areas and that will be done immediately following construction.

Once the water main and sanitary sewer are installed, they will be available for you to connect to. The approximate cost to connect is:

Sanitary Sewer: $15,000 (of which approximately $13,500 can be financed over 10 years)

Water:  $8,600 (of which approximately $7,000 can be financed over 10 years)

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns on my cell phone at (248) 202-8803 or email jmayer@nullgiffelswebster.com for any anything related to the construction.  Please contact the Commerce Township Building Department at (248) 960-7060 for questions about connecting to the water main or sanitary sewer after it is put into service.
