NOTICE OF TANK PAINTING – KROES WATER TANK   Beginning September 15, 2014 the Kroes Water Tank (located by Rockford High School) will be out of service for painting. The contract length for the project is 45 days and will be completed by October 30, 2014. For the duration of the project we will be interconnected with the City of Rockford Water System in order to provide reliable water service to the residents currently served by the Kroes Water Tank. The area served is generally east of Childsdale Ave., and north of Kuttshill Dr., and Northland Dr.

Please be aware that the City of Rockford’s water is not softened. They have an iron removal plant that effectively removes the excess iron from their wells, but does not remove calcium, which is a component of water hardness. You may experience a white substance in your water. This is the calcium that is coming out of solution and is not a health concern. Calcium tends to come out of solution more readily in hot water. Dishwashers and dishes with calcium plating can usually be cleaned with a white vinegar solution, which is a mild acid that dissolves the base calcium.

With the good weather we are having, we expect to have the tank back in service around the middle of October. The new paint in the Kroes Water Tank will give it an effective life of 15 to 20 years before it has to be painted again. If you have any concerns, please contact the Water Department at (616) 363-9660.

Important Information for Disabled Veterans Governor Rick Snyder recently signed legislation that extends the current homestead property tax exemption for disabled military veterans to a veteran’s spouse if the veteran passes away before the tax break is granted. The existing property tax exemption eases the cost of home ownership for military veterans who were honorably discharged and are disabled and unable to work.
