Hello city water project (BRWAA) participant.
The city water project is progressing, and some private homes are finally becoming eligible to hook up to the water utility. The first homes to hook up will be in the southwest portion of the neighborhood, where the lines were first installed when the project began construction about 4 weeks ago. If you live in this area, Debelak has probably already contacted you and has set up a lateral installation appointment for your home. A copy of the updated construction timeline can be found on the Village web site, found here: http://www.bayside-wi.gov/?nid=363 or this direct link. Please keep in mind that it may take a week or two after your street has been constructed, for it to be tested and ready for lateral installations.
Debelak has laid the groundwork for these installations, and will be contacting you to schedule your installation date. They would like to proceed with the lateral installations along more or less the same route the city water project has been constructed, installing approximately 8 (eight) homes a day in our project area. As portions of the build-out are constructed down the streets and approved for water distribution, Debelak will follow close behind, installing the laterals as the project goes forward.
Please keep in mind that because of the heavy machinery involved (and the time required to move such machinery around), and because of the water project build schedule itself, it is not possible for Debelak to schedule your install on a day of your choosing. They will pick the install date and let you know some time in advance when they will be installing your home. It is not necessary for you to be home when they do the install, but they will need access to your home on the day of your installation in order to perform the job.
Once the lateral (up to and including the water meter) is installed to your home, you may opt to have the Debelak plumber do the work to finish the job that day by hooking up the water supply from the meter horn to your house.
If you haven’t already done so, it is necessary for each member to fill out the Billing Application form for the water utility. This form can also be found at the village web site: http://www.bayside-wi.gov/?nid=363 , or this direct link
As stated in the document, to comply with regulation it is necessary to accompany this with a copy of your driver’s license or other government issued photo ID. You can then mail the documents into the City of Mequon, or you can fax them in. For those that are more tech savvy you can scan and email the documents. Alternatively, you can drop the application off at Village Hall, and if needed they can photocopy your driver’s license or ID for you and get these over to the water utility. The contact information and addresses (mail, fax, and email) are given at the bottom of the form. If possible, please send this paperwork in by the end of the week. The utility will not turn on the water to your home until this paperwork is filled out.
As always, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, and I hope all is well
