POLK PENGUIN CONSERVATION CENTER REPAIRS
The Detroit Zoo will temporarily close the Polk Penguin Conservation Center to make repairs to faulty waterproofing.  Construction is scheduled to begin September 9th and completion is anticipated in mid-June 2020.  The nature of the repair may require the use of trucks and other construction vehicles along Huntington Road.  The Zoo will make every effort to minimize any inconvenience to residents in Huntington Woods and Royal Oak.
DTE UPDATE FOR DUNDEE / YORK AREA RESIDENTS

The City received an update from DTE that said after reviewing the outage history, the data from the Dundee/York outages suggests that they are primarily caused by tree interference. The tree trim planning for this area has been completed and the actual trimming will start next week. The trimming for the whole circuit (not just the portion in Huntington Woods) will take 6 - 8 weeks to complete.

 

In addition to the tree survey, the DTE engineering team conducted a review of the equipment serving this area and looked at the age of the equipment such as pole top transformers. Although the equipment appears not to be related to the recent outages, as part of the work on this circuit, DTE will replace some of the transformers at the top of the pole as well as add an additional one which will more evenly distribute load. They will also replace some poles and fuses and add new fuse locations to further break up the circuit so if there is a problem on the circuit it affects less customers. The equipment changes will be completed in parallel with the tree trimming over the next few weeks. DTE expects that reliability will improve as the work is completed.

 

There will be a DTE Electric Reliability Open House on Tuesday, August 20th from 4 - 7 p.m. at the Gillham Recreation Center.
