In the aftermath of the August 10, 2020 derecho, Cedar Springs experienced an extended power outage. This outage was nerve-wracking for residents on the cul-de-sacs in sections 7, 8, and 9 of Cedar Springs, who rely on the electric-powered lift stations to prevent sewage backup into their homes.
The Cedar Springs HOA board is working with PeopleService, which manages the operation and maintenance of our lift stations for waste water in Parts 7, 8 and 9, to receive price quotes for a portable generator and the electrical work that will be needed on each lift station’s control box to accommodate a hook-up.
Having the portable generator will enable us to be better prepared if we ever encounter such a prolonged power outage again. PeopleService will respond to such a scenario by taking the generator to any of the sites that need to have sewage pumped out.
Once the HOA board has the expense estimate, we will do everything we can to expedite the schedule for this improvement.
