Shaw Contracting is the prime contractor, at a contract cost of $1,836,105. The City is receiving $1,078,388 in federal funding through MDOT. The remaining amount is being funded through City Streets, Water, and Sewer budgets.

The Water Division obtained a low-interest Drinking Water Revolving Fund (DWRF) loan through Michigan EGLE (formerly MDEQ).  The loan is for $5 million; in which $1 million does not have to be paid back.  With new legislation, the City is now responsible for replacing private watermain services if they are made from lead or galvanized lead.  This funding allows the City to perform a construction project that focuses on lead lines.  There are three sections of the project:
  • Replacement of Lead or Galvanized Private Water Services
  • Replacement of Lead Watermain
  • Hydro Excavation to Determine Type of Water Services

The overall project includes approximately 1,000 water service replacements, 7 blocks of watermain replacement, and 5,000 hydro excavation locations. Construction will take place through October of this year.  Super Construction is the contractor.
