The city of Kalamazoo is planning a $20 million project to upgrade water mains and replace lead water service lines in part of town, and your bill could go up by $2.40 per month as a result, according to the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE).
Water mains will be replaced in the northwest part of the city on Arlington Street, Dartmouth Street, Pinehurst Boulevard, Campbell Avenue, Commonwealth Avenue, North Clarendon Street, North Berkley Street, Waverly Street, Wilmette Street, Crown Street, Martin Street and Lulu Street. A 24-inch diameter main will be run along West Crosstown Parkway.
Additionally, 1,500 lead service lines will be replaced in the neighborhood south of Mosel Avenue and west of the Kalamazoo River. Construction begins this fall, Public Services Director James Baker said.
