water drop

Per the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, the tests of water from the Shelby Township supply tested CLEAN. With this result, Shelby Township DPW has lifted its boil water alert. THE BOIL WATER ALERT IS OVER.

Also, because of the positive test, anyone who may have mistakenly consumed water while the boil alert was in effect does not need to worry about any ill effects from ingesting the water.

Below is the message from DWSD:

"The bacteriological samples collected on Saturday, March 28th indicate no total coliform or E. coli contamination. The following communities of Rochester Hills, Washington Township and Shelby Township may lift the boil water alert. The second set of samples will be collected today and those results will be ready Monday morning."

Shelby Township 2014 Road Projects --24 MILE ROAD UPDATE--

The project to install a 42-inch diameter water main under 24 Mile Road from Dequindre to Romeo Plank roads with a full reconstruction of both lanes of traffic has begun in Shelby and Macomb Townships.

Ric-Man Construction Inc.'s jack and bore operation for the installation of a 42-inch water main under the westbound lane of 24 Mile Road has both lanes of traffic closed to through traffic between Mound Road and South Down Street while crews finish the jack and bore process under the river.

Because of the nature of work being performed under the Clinton River, South Down Street traffic cannot enter or exit onto 24 Mile Road. All South Down Street traffic MUST enter and exit off of Mound Road. All other residential streets off of 24 Mile Road between Mound Road and South Down Street will be accessible and 24 Mile Road will be OPEN to local traffic.

The Macomb County Department of Roads issued a March 5 start date for the closure and said a date to re-open the road is yet to be determined.

Starting March 10, crews performing a jack and bore operation under the Harris Drain will close 24 Mile Road to both lanes of traffic for a 500-foot stretch from Oak Grove Drive and run east. Royal Frost Drive on the south side of 24 Mile Road will NOT be affected by this closure. Ric-Man anticipates the full closure of the road in this stretch will last three days.

Flagging crews will be directing traffic as open trench work installs segments of the pipe under the westbound lane of 24 Mile Road between Schoenherr and Hayes roads to keep traffic flow open for east and westbound motorists.
