If the Water and Sewer Department has had to dig out front of your home or business. We regret any mess or inconvenience this may have caused.
Restoration of this area will be scheduled once the excavation has dried out and proper compaction can be attempted.
Concrete, asphalt and landscape excavation repairs are scheduled on an area by area basis. Once in a neighborhood any excavations dry enough will be attempted.
Clean-up involving concrete, asphalt and landscaping of excavations made in the late fall, during the winter and early spring will begin once load limit restrictions are lifted by Macomb County. This may vary due to weather conditions year to year.
Every reasonable attempt will be made to restore excavated areas to the conditions that existed prior to digging. Any concrete, asphalt or landscaping damaged will be restored. Maintained grassy areas will be sodded with Class "A" sod. Un-maintained areas will be leveled, top soil laid down and covered with grass seed.
Once an area has been sodded; watering and maintenance of this area until the sod takes root will be your responsibility. If you do not wish to have sod laid down please inform this Department in writing. This area will then be graded, top soil and seed laid down instead.
If you have any questions about landscape repairs please contact the Shook Road Maintenance Facility at (586) 791-1766 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily excepting holidays.
