Construction to replace thousands of lineal feet of water and sewer lines in the Village of Kalkaska is about one-third complete, according to a recent update provided by village manager Scott Yost to the Kalkaska Village Council. The project, funded through low-interest loans from the USDA's Rural Development program, should be finished in October.

KALKASKA – Scott Yost, Kalkaska village manager, hasn’t been shy about apologizing to local residents for torn up streets and the other inconveniences caused by a more than $4 million water and sewer project.

But, the village manager said the project continues to move forward, as he provided yet another update at the regular Kalkaska Village Council meeting on Monday, July 10.

“We will wrap construction up on the south side of the community, and then move the crews to work on the north side,” Yost said. “Some work, indeed, has been started on the north end, but the bulk of the work was focused on the southerly areas of the village, to this point.

“And, don’t forget about the east side,” he added. “The east side has and will see it all – water main, some sewer work and a storm sewer upgrade in the Industrial Park area.”
