Water Infrastructure Background Documents
- Water Infrastructure Project – Engineer’s Probable Estimate of Costs – The estimate of costs provides the baseline for the City’s Asset Management Plan and our budget and rate setting decisions.
- Pleasant Ridge Water Asset Management Plan (2021) – This document presents the City’s 30-year plan to replace our water infrastructure. The plan was approved by EGLE.
- Water Quality Testing Results – Sampled lead levels in water for all public water systems in the State are available at the above link. The allowed maximum limit for lead in water is 15 parts per billion. Pleasant Ridge had a sampled lead level of 4 parts per billion in 2020, well below the maximum allowed.
- Preliminary Water System Materials Inventory by Service Address – The preliminary material inventory shows the information the City has about the service line at each service address in the City. This inventory is based on City records and assumptions about the type of material used before and after 1936.
- Water Distribution System Reliability Study and Master Plan (2016) – Master Plan for maintenance of water distribution system. This document identifies necessary projects. Its implementation was paused by the new EGLE lead and copper rules, but it is the basis for the need to replace our water mains for reliability and fire flow.D

Water bills are issued on a bi-monthly basis, and cover the January-February, March-April, May-June, July-August, September-October, and November-December billing periods. Bills are issued by the 25th day of the month following the end of the billing period, and are due on the 25th of the month after they are issued. This means that the bill for the January-February billing period will be mailed to residents by the 25th of March, and will be due by the 25th of April.
If you do not receive a water bill by the first week of February, April, June, August, October, or December, please contact Evan in the Water Department for a duplicate bill. Failure to receive a bill does not waive past due penalties.
Payments may be mailed to City Hall, returned to City Hall during regular business hours, or left in the drop box at the rear entrance (off the parking lot) to City Hall. Payments left in the drop box will be credited the next business day. Postmarks are not honored for mailed bills, so please allow seven days when mailing your payment to be sure that it arrives here before the due date.
