[ARCHIVED] PUBLIC HEARING: Water Distribution, Treatment, and Supply System Improvements

CITY OF GRAND LEDGE

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

WATER DISTRIBUTION, TREATMENT, AND SUPPLY 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 Water Distribution, Treatment, and Supply 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 water distribution, treatment system and raw water supply system. The improvements will allow for the continued supply, treatment, and distribution of potable water to the City water system throughout the service area in accordance with the current EPA regulations.

Project elements include the construction of a new iron removal plant with site works and ancillary improvements as required to provide a complete and functioning system, the replacement of about 980 feet of 6-inch water main along Green Street, the identification and testing of potential groundwater supply well sites, and the construction and outfitting of those groundwater supply wells.

Long term positive impacts from the project include improved reliability of the treatment system, improved treatment efficiencies, and additional groundwater supply for the system. Short term impacts related to construction activities could include increased construction traffic and disturbances in the immediate vicinity of the water treatment plant site and Green Street.

The current total estimated project cost is $19,957,000. The project cost will be funded through a low interest Michigan Department of Environment, Great lakes, and Energy (EGLE) State Revolving Fund (SRF) 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 cityhall@cityofgrandledge.com.  All written comments received before the hearing record is closed on 09 May 2022 will receive responses in the final project plan.

Please call (517) 627-2149 or email cityhall@cityofgrandledge.com for further information or to request accommodations for disabilities.
