LASA Water Main Replacement

Update: For details about the locations and planned schedule of this work, please click here: Project Schedule.

Questions about this project should be directed to Ted Erickson, (734) 657-4925, TErickson@processresults.com

The LASA water main replacement work on Northgate, Midway and Greenook Boulevard has begun, and the following information in detail was received from the Sanitary Authority yesterday. We apologize for the short notice that you are receiving from LASA.

The new water main is being installed by a trenchless technology called horizontal directional drilling where lengths of pipe are installed without open cutting the entire way. Connections and services leads are excavated as necessary. The process will take several weeks for:
- Installation of new water main, hydrants, and valves 
- Testing and disinfection of the new water main
- Individual services disconnected from the existing main and tied into the new main. Each house will be without water service for a couple of hours during the switchover. We will contact individual homeowners when their water service is being switched over.
- Restoration of disturbed areas as the weather allows.

Where possible, the connection between the new main and existing system is done without turning off service. Where an existing valve requires replacement, service interruption may be necessary. Any potential service interruption will be communicated via email and/or door hangers.

Board Bulletin - Groundhog Day 2016

Loch Alpine Board Bulletin

Groundhog Day, 2016


AACC Update

At the end of December the LAIA Board organized action teams to explore different courses of action for the neighborhood to consider regarding the sale of the AACC properties. The Action Team Kickoff Document provides  background on team charges and their focus. The teams have been working diligently and are continuing their work, and a near term goal is to provide an update to the membership during the annual Members meeting in March. The focus for each team should be to provide Members with sufficient detail and data in their proposed areas so that Members can make informed decisions about any option presented, and arrive at a plan of action that can be supported by the majority of the neighborhood. The Board appreciates their efforts and the time they are spending working on the neighborhood’s behalf.

The Board sent a follow up communication to Mr. Whaley on January 15, and to date we have received no reply. The Board has also provided updates and been in contact with our attorneys, both townships, LASA, and representatives of our neighboring communities.

We Want You to Join the Board

The 2016 Board of Directors will represent Loch Alpine  residents during the extremely crucial years to come. The LAIA Board of Directors is hoping to offer residents a robust group of candidates for the Board to elect at the annual meeting. We will elect four 2-year board directors and one 1-year board director.

If you are interested in being a candidate for one of the five openings on the Board, please contact Nominating Committee chair Randall Torno at 424-2789 or rantor@comcast.net.  We will need to have candidate bios by February 15.
