Well Refurbishment and Electrical Upgrades for the City of Fenton Water Treatment Facility


Fenton, MI: City Council approved two proposals to refurbish and upgrade Well Number Six located at the City of Fenton Water Treatment Facility. The City of Fenton is one of the few communities in Genesee County that has its own water treatment plant and supplies its customers with a high quality water. Over one hundred tests are run on a daily basis and the facility is under constant review for quality and progression towards treatment goals. 


Supplying water to The City of Fenton is a big job and occasionally during scheduled inspections, improvements and refurbishments are suggested to maintain efficiency and production. Well Number Six was budgeted to be mechanically overhauled and the well chemically cleaned for 2023. Peerless Midwest performs the routine maintenance and testing on all of the pumps at each municipal well and most recent results show that the pump in Well Number Six has decreased capacity. Overhauling and chemical cleaning of the well is recommended to increase capacity and efficiency. Peerless Midwest will complete this maintenance at a cost of $49,980.00 to rehabilitate Well Pump Number Six. 


Also included in this fiscal year’s budget are electrical upgrades to Well Number Six. Murphy Electrical has been approved to complete electrical work to the manual shutoff switch, automatic transfer switch, and configuration of signal wires with capacity to draw off a generator used during an electrical outage. John Murphy of Murphy Electrical was the project manager when the Water Treatment Facility was built and has completed all of the electrical work there to date. The total cost for this project is not to exceed $27,995.00 and was approved by City Council. For more information about the City of Fenton’s Water Treatment Facility, you can visit
