Update on LASA Water Main Replacement Project, January 31
 
As of last week, all of the new water main has been installed.
 
Crews are continuing to work on transferring individual home connections to the new main on Sunderland, Canterbury, Fairway and Hawthorn. Crews are also installing hydrants and valves, making connections, and testing and disinfecting the new water main on West Loch Alpine, Morrow, Rondo, Greenway, and Climbing Way.
 
The Eastgate area service connections should be complete in the next week or so. The West Loch Alpine service connections will be transferred over after the successful completion of the water main testing.
 
There may be a short interruption of service when homes are connected to the new water main.  Most interruptions have been less than 30 minutes.  Each home service is flushed until clear at an outside spigot if available.  Residents may experience some red water resulting from existing iron deposits in the service line between the curb box and house (which is not part of the replacement).  Please let us know if the red water does not clear up.
 
Process Results, Inc. is the engineering company hired by LASA to administer the project.  Please contact them with concerns or questions:
 
     Dan Kehr, On Site Representative     (734) 366-0562
     Ted Erickson, Project Manager          (734) 657-4925

Looking for Leaders
Posted on Feb 6th, 2017
Dear Neighbors,
 
Are you interested in contributing to the ongoing well-being of our unique and beautiful neighborhood by serving on the Loch Alpine Improvement Association (LAIA) board of directors? If so, can you let me know, and send me a brief biography, before February 13.

I am asking because we need three new directors starting in March, due to a few board member terms coming to a close. The terms are for two years and regular meetings are held once a month in the early evening, with additional "executive sessions" held as needed to address important issues. This is an important time for LAIA as we tackle important matters regarding the former Ann Arbor Country Club property. So I urge any of you with a vested interest in maintaining the long-term sustainability of our landscape to run for election to the Board.
 
Again, if you're interested and available to serve, then please contact me by February 13 with the following: 
  • A statement that you'd like to run
  • A brief bio of your background and what you aim to contribute as a new LAIA board member 
We will be sharing all of the bios with neighbors in a mailing packet prior to the LAIA Annual Meeting, and all neighbors will vote on nominees during the Annual Meeting in March.
 
You may reach me at lisapappas@lochalpine.org and/or call or text me at (734) 717-4708. 
 
Thank you for your consideration,
 
Lisa A. Pappas, LAIA Board Member

DTE Power Outages and Credit Program
 
The frequency of power outages in Loch Alpine over the past several months has been frustrating. The LAIA Board has contacted DTE's regional manager to express this frustration and to request that the utility improve service reliability in Loch Alpine. He responded that the neighborhood may be "on tap" for circuit work, but we will be asking for specific actions.
 
Of interest,  DTE Electric has implemented service quality and reliability standards defined by the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). These standards provide customers a $25 credit upon request, if their investigation of your request determines you have experienced the following:
A power outage* of more than 16 hours under normal conditions.
An outage* of more than 120 hours under catastrophic conditions
Or eight or more outages* during a 12-month period
*A power outage consists of full or partial loss of service for longer than 5 minutes.
 
If extraordinary circumstances have prevented DTE Electric from meeting these standards, the company may submit a waiver request to the MPSC for its consideration.
 
Those who feel that they meet one of the criteria outlined above can submit a credit request via this webpage or by calling (313) 235-7104.
