Sewer Cleaning & Televising Work - Oct & Nov
Months of October & November
As part of the City of Lathrup Village's infrastructure maintenance program, the sanitary sewer on certain streets or rear yards will be cleaned and inspected. Residents will notice the contract, Equix (Equix Integrity, Inc.), onsite performing this work. The crew hours can range from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
This is a preventative maintenance and inspection work, and there will be no interruption in your water or sewer service. The sewer will be cleaned and then inspected with a remote television camera to evaluate the condition.
There may be brief intervals during the workday that a portion of the street is blocked by either large trucks or equipment. The Police and Fire Department have been notified of the work. There will be NO interruption in emergency service.
During work on the sewer, some residents may or may not experience an odor coming from your drains or toilets. To reduce the chance of odor, please add water to all floor drains, along with any sinks or toilets that are not used regularly inside your home.
Should you experience any issues during the project, please contact:
Chuck Tucker (Giffels Webster - Engineer) 248.925.9130
Jim Coomer (Equix) 336.473.1111
They will work with you to see that the issue is resolved.

Coronavirus Prevention and Info
Governor has created a new taskforce regarding the Coronavirus.
Michigan currently has no known cases of the disease. For the general American public, who are unlikely to be exposed to this virus at this time, the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low. People in communities where ongoing community spread with the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated though still relatively low risk of exposure.
Patients with confirmed infection have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of:
- Shortness of breath
The best prevention for viruses, such as influenza, the common cold or COVID-19 is to:
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- If you are sick, stay home, and avoid contact with others.

DTE MAINTENANCE TREE TRIMMING
Here's what to expect:
1. Before DTE begins trimming, they will send you a letter letting you know when they will be in the area.
2. Shortly after, DTE planners will assess your neighborhood and create a trimming plan.
3. If trimming is needed on your property, DTE will knock on your door and leave a door hanger describing the necessary trimming. Your planner will leave his/her contact information to answer any questions you may have regarding the work planned for your property.
4. If a tree possess a hazard to the power lines, and/or trimming will damage the tree's health, it may be removed. These trees will be marked with two white dots. In this instance, DTE planners will make every effort to contact you to discuss the removal. After your tree removal permit is signed, planners will mark the tree with a white "X" indicating it is ready for removal.
5. Due to many varying factors, tree trimming schedules are sometimes changed or delayed. In this event, DTE will do their best to inform you of those changes.
You may contact DTE for more information at the link provided below or by calling 313-235-8021.
