Huron Valley Schools to Hold Meeting With Residents Regarding Water Issues

Groundwater contamination has been reported near Lakeland High School off Bogie Lake Road in White Lake, according to Huron Valley Schools. The district will meet with residents affected by the contamination Wednesday.

The following is a letter from the Huron Valley School District sent to homeowners in White Lake affected by recent ground water contamination problems at the Huron Valley School District's Bogie Lake campus.

A meeting will be held at Lakeland High School Wednesday, Dec. 19, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Representatives from many agencies and the district will be on hand to answer any questions.

Over the past 12 months, Huron Valley Schools has been working to keep residents informed of an on-going groundwater study being completed in your neighborhood.

The installation of groundwater monitoring wells and the decommissioning of the waste water treatment facility on the HVS’ Bogie Lake campus has raised a few questions among area residents. Therefore, in an effort to keep you informed, we have scheduled a community meeting for Wednesday, December 19 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lakeland High School LGI room.

The meeting is intended to provide an opportunity for you to hear information regarding these issues and ask questions of representatives of the various regulatory and oversight agencies involved. Residents who attend the meeting will have access to representatives of HVS, the Oakland Health Division and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, among others.  Representatives from the various agencies will be available at various stations to answer resident’s questions about the groundwater study, drilling activities and the decommissioning of the waste water treatment facility. 

In an effort to plan appropriately for seating, please RSVP to Jane Marttila at 248-684-8281 or jane.marttila@hvs.org.
