Board of Public Works reviews expansion at Tecumseh Poultry and effect on fire protection

By Ann Wickett
News Editor
Concern about adequate water pressure to fire hydrants in the vacinity of the new Tecumseh Poultry plant expansion led the Tecumseh Board of Public Works to vote in favor of researching water flow within the city fire protection system at their meeting on March 2. Olsson Associates will develop the water model. Cost for this work was not given at the meeting but Public Properties Foreman Doug Goracke said it would be less than $20,000. Ken Fairchild of Olsson Associates said this water model would be similar to the electrical model they are in the process of developing for the city of Tecumseh. With the water flow numbers at Tecumseh Poultry and throughout the city of Tecumseh, Fairchild will be able to create a model predicting future outcomes of water flow and other data related to Tecumseh’s water system.
