The purpose of the proposed project is to complete Water System improvements to replace lead impacted water service lines as required by the State of Michigan.


Project construction will involve:

  • Replacement of lead impacted water service lines within the construction limits of the previous construction project and the proposed 2021-2023 project.

Impacts of the proposed project include short term construction related impacts and financial impacts to the City’s water system users.  No significant long term adverse impacts are anticipated on either cultural or environmentally sensitive resources.


The estimated cost to users for the proposed project will be approximately $700,000 total project costs with costs to individual users dependent on the level and type of project financing that can be secured by the City for the project. The City intends to pursue project financing with the goal of minimizing impact to the system users
