Last fall we reported the watermain extension project getting underway on Thompson Road. Not only has this project been in progress since last winter, but it's about to get more intense for Thompson Road residents and drivers. Don't worry, this isn't another round-about being added (those are scheduled in other places).

Why are they bothering to extend the water main into Fenton Township, MI?

According to World Population Review, Genesee County is the 5th largest county in Michigan. While the population has been gradually declining since 2010 (about -.5%), more industry is expected, and people have been moving to those areas. Getting the infrastructure in place, now, will be better than later.
