Loch Alpine Sanitary Authority (LASA) began flushing and winterizing hydrants last week, and will continue through the end of September. Flushing of the hydrants will be conducted between 7 am and 3 pm. Please be advised that you may experience some discoloration of household water during this process. The discoloration is only temporary and does not indicate a problem with the water. If your water does become discolored, turn on an outside faucet to clear the water line before doing any laundry or cleaning. The LASA water department will continue to monitor the water quality during this period to ensure that the water remains safe to drink.
LASA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause, but flushing is an important part of its system maintenance. Please contact the water department at (517) 673-9369 with any questions or concerns you may have.

Loch Alpine Drinking Water is Safe
Has Loch Alpine drinking water been affected by the chromium and PFAS in the Huron River or the dioxane from Gelman? The short answer is NO. Our drinking water comes from Loch Alpine Sanitary Authority (LASA) wells located within the subdivision. The Huron River is not a source of water for the LASA well fields and therefore has no chance of affecting the LASA water quality. LASA continually monitors its water to assure the safety of its customers.
The dioxane from Gelman has also been determined to be downstream of the LASA well fields, so water quality has not been affected by the Gelman release. For more info on the latest water quality issues in Michigan, go to the following website https://www.michigan.gov/egle
Lakes Committee member Cindy Walton conducted a second round of E.coli bacteria testing in both Loch Alpine lakes on August 12. The readings showed a level of 19 E.coli/100ml in the upper lake, 5/100ml in the lower lake. The safety standard is 100/100 ml in any one testing.
