Letter to Residents

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS
Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Work

The City of Wyandotte recently conducted a survey of the sanitary sewer system within the  neighborhoods shown on the attached 2019 Relining Area Map, and as a result of the survey, the City is now proceeding with the rehabilitation of sewers that have been identified with interior surface deterioration, cracking within the pipe or leaking joints allowing groundwater to enter the sanitary sewer system. The City has recently contracted with Granite Inliner of Romulus, Michigan to complete the installation of a cured-in-place pipe lining within those sewers identified with defects.  Below are some photos of their equipment you will see when they are working in your neighborhood.  

 During the weeks of July 29th through August 9th, 2019, Granite Inliner, will be in the identified neighborhoods, cleaning and preparing the sewers for the lining installation.  Residents adjacent to the sewer line to be clean/rehabilitated will be notified in advance by Granite.  Once all sewers have been prepared for lining installation, Granit Inliner will return to install the liner.  You will receive another notice from Granite Inliner to notify you of the impending lining installation.  See the attached Notice of Sewer Lining Work.

 During work on the sewer some residents may or may not experience an odor coming from drains or toilets.  We ask that you keep toilet lids closed and if possible, place a towel between the lid and seat.  To reduce the chance of odor, please add water to all floor drains.  

 Your cooperation during this work is appreciated. Questions should be directed to Granite Inliner at (734) 231-6766, or (734) 231-6700, or to Greg Mayhew, City Engineer at 734-324-4554, or by email at gmayhew@wyandottemi.gov.

RE: CONCRETE PATCHING OF THE FOLLOWING STREETS:

             18th (Ford Avenue – Cedar)

The City of Wyandotte has contracted with Al’s Asphalt Paving Co. to perform concrete patching as part of the 2019 HMA Resurfacing Program.  Phase 3 of the project is scheduled to begin on Friday, July 12th, 2019

 

Saw cutting will commence on Friday, July 12th; pavement removals are scheduled to commence on Tuesday, July 16th

  This phase of the project will be completed in stages over a period of approximately 8 weeks.  During this time properties may lose access to driveways for short periods of time, possibly as long as ten (10) days.  Once the pavement removals begin, the street will be closed to through traffic during working hours, except for emergencies.  However, residents will be allowed to access their homes.  The street will be repaired one-half at a time to allow traffic to continue after working hours.  Please park vehicles in other locations when contractors are working on your street so that work can be performed in a safe and timely manner.

 Trash pickup will continue on the regularly scheduled day.

We apologize for the inconvenience this work may cause you.  The City and Al’s Asphalt will try to limit the inconvenience as best as possible.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.  Should you have any questions, kindly contact the Jesus Plasencia at 734-324-4558, or by email at jplasencia@wyandottemi.gov.

 


NOTICE

 RE: North Drive and Alfred
      Storm Water Flooding

  The City of Wyandotte is aware of the street flooding problems affecting the residents on the east end of North Drive and Alfred Street.  At this time there is little that the City can do to reduce the water levels in the street.

 

 An engineering study performed in 1997 indicated that the North Drive area, from 4th to Alfred, may be subject to basement flooding.  This was due to the storm water catch basins being connected to the sanitary sewer located in the center of North Drive.  To eliminate this concern, the report recommended that the storm water be separated from the sanitary sewer and be directed to the Sexton Kilfoil Drain (Ecorse Creek).  The work was completed in 2000, and the storm water on North Drive from 4th St. to Alfred St. is now collected in catch basins and conveyed to the east thru PVC storm pipes, then north thru vacant land and is emptied into the Sexton Kilfoil Drain.

  At the time of construction in 2000, the storm water pipe outfall to the Drain was set approximately seven (7) inches above the water level in the Drain, and the catch basins lids were 3.4’ to 4’ above the water level.

  Unfortunately, much of Michigan has received an unusual amount of rainfall which has resulted in unusually high-water levels of the Great Lakes and Detroit River.  The water level of the Sexton Kilfoil Drain has also been unusually high.  Based on current observations and the 2000 construction design data, the Drain is approximately 4.5 feet above the water level measured in 2000.

 The City is exploring options to prevent this from occurring in the future.  One likely option is installing a “check valve” in the storm line in the area of the vacant land.  This would prevent water from flowing from the Drain and to the street and out of the catch basins. 

  Plugging the storm water outlet at this time would not be advisable because when it rains, all the storm water collected on North Drive from 4th to Alfred would have no place to go and result in street flooding.

 The City will continue to monitor North Drive and Alfred.  As water levels recede, the DPW will sweep the street and continue to provide insect repellant to the areas of standing water.

 Should you have any questions or concerns, kindly contact City Engineer Greg Mayhew at 734-324-4554, or by email at gmayhew@wyandottemi.gov.

NOTICE


RE: CONCRETE RECONSTRUCTION OF SUPERIOR NORTH (15th Street – 17th Street)

The City of Wyandotte has contracted with G.V. Cement to perform the concrete reconstruction of Superior North, between 15th Street and 17th Street, as part of the 2018 Concrete Street Program.  The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 18th 2018

The project involves complete removal of the existing pavement, sewer upgrades, and new pavement construction.  Driveway approaches and restoration will be completed after the new pavement is cured.  Since Superior Street is narrow, the entire road will be closed to all traffic during construction.  Residents will not have access to their driveways and will have to park elsewhere during construction.  The project is anticipated to be completed over a period of approximately 8 weeks.  Police and Fire will be notified of the road closure for proper response to emergencies. 

Trash pickup will continue on the regularly scheduled day.

We apologize for the inconvenience this work may cause you.  The City and G.V. Cement will try to limit the road closure as best as possible.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
