Water disruption in Ishpeming Thursday

ISHPEMING – A round of water system disruptions as part of Ishpeming’s Partridge Creek Project are scheduled Thursday to allow for permanent connections.

The contractor on the project is preparing to make the final connections of the new water main along Division Street to the existing water system to Lake Street, Pine Street, and Division Street east of Pine Street.

This work will complete water system improvements on Division Street. Bacteriological sampling has already taken place on the new main. Therefore, a water boil advisory is not required as part of this work, city officials said.

Water service disruption is expected for several hours Thursday morning for the following areas:

Division Street from Greenwood to First Street

Pine Street from Bluff Street to Front Street

Main Street from Johnson Street to Cleveland Avenue

Water will be restored to each area as the new connections are completed. Any concerns may be directed to the Ishpeming Department of Public Works at 486-9371.
