Fire hydrant replace program enacted through February 2017

In following through on the City of Taylor’s planning efforts to maintain and improve City infrastructure, fire hydrants are scheduled to be replaced as part of the 2016 City of Taylor Water Main Rehabilitation Program.  Attached is a map showing the fire hydrant locations.  The work will primarily involve the removal and replacement of the fire hydrants, and in some cases the supply pipe and valve.  

The City of Taylor has contracted with Bidigare Contractors, Inc. to perform the 2016 City of Taylor Water Main Rehabilitation Program.  Wade Trim Associates, Inc., the Consulting Engineer for this Project, will be providing construction inspection oversight and construction engineering assistance.      

Fire hydrant replacements will begin the week of December 19, 2016, and continue thru February 2017.  There will be barricaded, open, construction pits at the fire hydrant replacement locations as well as construction equipment moving up and down the streets.

Residents may be without water service for a period of time between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. while the contractor replaces the fire hydrant. Notification of necessary water shut-offs will be distributed the day before to the affected properties. Please note you will not be left without water service overnight.  

The shutting off/turning on process may cause some reversal of flow in existing mains which will cause circulation of sediment in the existing mains. This may cause a discoloration that is not harmful to you. If discoloration occurs, the problem may be corrected by letting your cold water run for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, or until the discoloration goes away. Also, remove and clean any filters you may have at faucets or connections to appliances as they will trap sediment and result in low flow or pressure until cleaned. We advise residents to not use their washing machines and dishwashers until the water is clear to prevent any possible staining of personal property.  

We encourage you to call our engineering consultant, Wade Trim, with all construction-related questions or concerns. You can call them at (734) 947-9700. Please ask the operator to direct you to the Construction Department and indicate that you are calling regarding the City of Taylor 2016 Water Main Rehabilitation Program.  

If you feel that your problem has not been resolved, please feel free to call Greg Mayhew, City Engineer, at (734) 374-1473, or Dennis McDermott at (734) 374-1451.
