Water leak repaired in Lapeer



“’Tis the season,” said Tom Crowley, a technician with USIC, Saturday afternoon as he worked to locate utility lines in front of a Lapeer Industries plant on McCormick Drive. Pam Reid, the city’s director of public works, said a six-inch service valve failed. DPW closed westbound McCormick to traffic from South Saginaw Street to South Calhoun streets while they shut the water line down. While winter is often tough on water services, Reid said, “We’ve being doing really well this winter.” She said that DPW crews shut off water to the service value. Lapeer Industries has two water services, so they were able to open on Monday. Reid said they still don’t know what caused the valve to fail.
