Hydrant Maintenance

The Utility will be doing its annual hydrant maintenance for the rest of the fall.  2018 being an even year means we will be doing the eastern side of Marshfield.  We will be doing maintenance checks on ever hydrant east of Central Avenue. 

Unidirectional Flushing Program

For as long as the daytime temperatures allow, we will be doing the unidirectional flushing program and we are currently concentrating on the southwestern quadrant of the City.  We have completed everything east of Lincoln Avenue.  After completion of the SW quadrant, we will move to the SE quadrant.

At this time all lead service acctivities have been suspended until next April.

 

Waushara Project - Completed

Marshfield Utilities Electric Department is currently working the Waushara Avenue area.  The underground wire has been in service since 1970 and needs to be replaced.  The line crew will be replacing the secondary wire, the service wire, and transformers.  When conditions allow, Marshfield Utilities uses directional boring vs. trenched or dug in to have a minimal disturbance to our customers' yards.   When Marshfield Utilities has completed their work, other utilities such as phone and cable will need to complete their work before the landscaping work can take place.  We will update as the project draws to a close.

Depot & Blodgett Project

We are continuing to upgrade our underground facilities to help to create problem free underground primary grid.  The underground wire in the Depot-Blodgett area was constructed in the late 1970's and needs to be replaced.

This project will help us get closer to a loop feed system in this area.  Loop feed systems are a practice we strive for.  They allow for very minimal outages because they are fed from two different locations.  With the help from our customers and easement signings, this can be accomplisehd.   Though this might be an inconvenience, the outcome will last for years of near trouble free electrical disturbances. 

The underground project will be completed using a directional bore machine.  With this porcess there will be minimal yard damage.  The bore machine is a series of rods that are connected together and is directional directed through the ground.  J & R Underground has been contracted on this project. 

When Marshfield Utilities has completed their work, landscaping will begin.
