Prepare for construction: Water main project slated for October

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.—The Coopersville City Council has picked a contractor to replace a water main that burst in July.

Around July 1, City Manager Steven Patrick said crews were upgrading a booster station to increase water pressure when the pipeline at 64th and West Randall Street burst. Patrick says the city planned to replace the entire water main while reconstructing West Randall Street next year. However, the planning commission agreed to move up the water main project to this year, in light of the recent problems.

On Monday, September 9, the Coopersville city council approved awarding the project to McCormick Sand, Inc.  The Twin Lake-based company placed the lowest bid for the work, at $276,102.

Crews are expected to begin replacing the water main the first week of October.  The work should wrap up around November 30, 2013.
