NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT AND COLLECTION SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS
The Grand Ledge City Council will hold a public hearing during its regular meeting at 7:30 p.m. on 09 May 2022, in the Council Chambers, City Hall, 310 Greenwood St., Grand Ledge MI 48837, to consider and receive public input on a proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant and Collection System Improvements project. The plan detailing the proposed project will be available on the City’s website at www.cityofgrandledge.com on and after 01 April 2022 and at City Hall, 310 Greenwood St., Grand Ledge MI 48837.
The purpose of the proposed project is to make improvements to the existing sanitary sewer collection system and treatment system. The improvements will allow for the continued treatment of sanitary sewage throughout the service area in accordance with the current National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.
Project elements include collection system improvements, an influent equalization tank, a fine screening system, a vortex grit removal system, a membrane bioreactor secondary treatment system, an ultraviolet disinfection system, solids handling improvements, site works, and ancillary improvements as required to provide a complete and functioning system.
Long-term positive impacts from the project include improved reliability of the treatment system and improved treatment efficiencies. Short-term impacts related to construction activities could include increased construction traffic and disturbances in the immediate vicinity of the Wastewater Treatment Plant site. Wastewater Treatment Plant improvements are estimated to require less than one acre of additional area.
The current total estimated project cost is $35,000,000. The project cost will be funded through a low-interest Michigan Department of Environment, Great lakes, and Energy State Revolving Fund loan.
The City Council invites anyone interested to attend and offer comments at the public hearing. Written comments can be mailed to or placed in the drop box in front of City Hall, 310 Greenwood St., Grand Ledge MI 48837, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All written comments received before the hearing record is closed on 09 May 2022 will receive responses in the final project plan.
