$500 million water infrastructure investment planned for Michigan
October 7, 2020
It's time for some clean drinking’ as Michigan plans to spend $500 million on improving the state’s water infrastructure.
Governor Whitmer announced “MI Clean Water'' on Oct. 1 and the money will come from federal dollars for lead service line replacement in low-income communities along with water quality protection.
This basically means that there’s going to be improvements to drinking water infrastructure and innovation to fix the water infrastructure. We’re talking about correcting combined sewer overflows and removing direct and continuous discharges of raw sewage from surface or groundwater.
The best part is that taxes will not be raised as a result of the investment, and will support over 7,500 jobs! The project has support from Democrats as well as Republicans. Team work!!!
