Public Hearing Notice for Connors Creek Sewer System Rehabilitation FY2022 State Revolving Fund (SRF) Project
The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) announces a Public Hearing regarding its Project Plan for the proposed Connors Creek Sewer System (CCSS) Rehabilitation project. GLWA will be seeking low interest State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan assistance for FY 2022. The project is comprised of the rehabilitation of the CCSS, which is one of the primary combined sewers in Detroit metropolitan area. The CCSS was originally constructed in the 1920s. Recent inspections revealed moderate to very severe defects needing to be repaired. Construction will include in-place rehabilitation of sewers and adding new access manhole structures. Right-of-way restoration will be performed on any disrupted areas. The impact of the project will improve customer satisfaction and safe reliable service delivery of sewage sewer conveyance to the Water Resource Recovery Facility. The temporary impact of construction activities will be minimized largely through extensive use of in-place rehabilitation technologies, along with mitigation measures specified in the contract documents. Adverse impacts on historical, archaeological, geographic, or cultural areas are not expected. The total cost of the project is currently estimated at approximately $36,809,760, which is being sought through the SRF low interest loan program. This sewer rehabilitation project is eligible for participation in the State of Michigan low interest SRF loan program.
The Public Hearing will present a description of the project, its evaluation, and estimated costs, as well as the cost per household impact for customer communities. The purpose of the hearing is not only to inform, but to gather feedback from people who will be affected. Comments and viewpoints from the public are requested.
