Consumers Energy has begun their residential gas line replacement program. They are replacing 200 service lines throughout Essexville. Their sub-contractor “TAPLIN” will be all around town using underground cameras to locate and mark your sewer line from your house to the City’s main. They will be marking your sewer location with stakes so that the new gas line routing does not interfere with it. At this time, TAPLIN plans on having one crew of workers locating lines. TAPLIN uses a white commercial van with the company name on the sides “TAPLIN” and all of their employees wear I.D. badges. They will at times be on your property briefly to locate and mark your sewer lines. Should you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
