DETROIT WATER AND SEWERAGE DEPARTMENT NOTICE
PUBLIC MEETING FOR SEWER REHABILITATION
FY25 CLEAN WATER STATE REVOLVING FUND (CWSRF) PROJECT
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) announces a Public Meeting regarding its Project Planning Document for proposed Sewer Main Rehabilitation throughout the city of Detroit. DWSD seeks low interest Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) loan assistance for FY2025. These projects include rehabilitating aging and/or compromised selected sewer mains located in Council Districts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 (under the Council District maps as of January 2024). Construction will include replacement of sewer mains, cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) rehabilitation, manhole replacement, manhole rehabilitation, and spot repairs. All work to be performed within the existing road right-of-way and easements. The impact of the project will be improved customer satisfaction and safe, reliable collection of untreated sanitary sewage from customers. This project will reduce the frequency of basement backups and cave-ins caused by sewer mains. The temporary impact of construction activities will be minimized through mitigation measures specified in the contract documents. Adverse impacts on historical, archaeological, geographic, or cultural areas are not expected. This project is necessary to ensure that DWSD can maintain the condition of its local combined sewer system. The Project Planning Document describes sewer mains in critical need of replacement or rehabilitation. The total cost of this work is $40,000,000, which is being sought through the CWSRF program.
The Public Meeting will present a description of the recommended projects, estimated costs, noting no potential impact for customers. The purpose of the meeting is not only to inform, but to seek and gather input from people that will be affected. Comments and viewpoints from the public are encouraged.
