GMU is currently beginning a multi phase project to install underground electric lines from the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 601 SE 4th St north along SE 4th St to SE Mills St, then going one block east on SE Mills before turning north on SE 5th St to SE Kent St. The first phase of this project will be from the Wastewater Treatment Plant to SE Noble St.
During this project, you may see flags on your property that locate the existing utility lines. Please do not pull these flags. The GMU employees will pull them as soon as they are finished with them.
This work will also include GMU digging mainly in the area between the sidewalk and street along the route of the new lines. In some circumstances, GMU may need to dig from the sidewalk to your house in order to update service lines. Any disturbance made to your property will be restored and reseeded before the project is finished.
Electric service may be temporarily unavailable for short periods of time as the changes are made. Please know that we make every effort to make these changes as quickly as safely possible in order to limit the interruption of your service.
Our employees will do their best to make every effort to not block any access to your property. If you have a concern regarding this project, please contact our office at 641-743-2741 during our business hours of 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
