City DPW crews will begin Hydro-Excavating March 15, 2021 in the following areas:

  • 900-1000 Block S. Park

  • 500 Block of Garfield

  • 1100-1400 Blocks of Pearce

  • 100 Block W Ridge.

  • 700-800 Woodlawn.

  • 500 Block of Division St.

  • 800-900 S. Washington.

  • 400 Block of Maple

  • 800 Block of S. Ball

    DPW will be examining water service lines as part of our ongoing effort to identify and replace all of the city’s lead service lines. This will be accomplished with a Hydro Excavator which uses high-pressure water to create a hole about 18 inches in diameter. The holes will all be backfilled with sand.

    We will need to view the water service lines in the right-of-way and on private property. If you prefer not to have a hole excavated in your yard, (please note, there will still be a hole in the right-of-way) you can call the SafeWater number at 989-725-0545, or e-mail safewater@ci.owosso.mi.us to schedule an in-home visit.
