The LansingStateJournal reports Moon Lake Estates MHC between Bath and Perry Michigan needs major water and sewer improvements following a power failure and two water main breaks that has led to a notice from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for residents to boil water. The community’s license was revoked in 2009 by the Manufactured Housing Commission for safety and signage violations, and is now facing water quality violations for failing to submit samples for testing. Moon Lake owner Steve Raleigh, who bought the property in 2010, says he inherited many problems when he purchased the community, which has only 30 tenants out of 105 home sites, and has been unable to obtain financing to make the needed repairs. He says he has demolished abandoned homes and made improvements. MHProNews has learned DEQ’s Stan Wurfel says the immediate goal is to restore quality water, and that grants may be available for infrastructure repairs.
