HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) - A group of Holland residents are petitioning for city water service, because of ongoing issues with their private wells.
One man in the neighborhood on Hiawatha Drive wants city water to be made available at a reasonable price. Robert De Wilde is concerned about low water levels and water quality in his private well.
"We had it tested a half a century ago, is that still good? I don't know," says De Wilde.
De Wilde recently collected petition signatures from about half a dozen neighbors in the same situation.
"The city owes us the option of having city water. We're right smack in the city, and we're not far removed on a high hill in the middle of nowhere," says De Wilde.
De Wilde says he's surrounded by homes that get city water. In fact, a city fire hydrant is just down the block from him.
