The City of Three Rivers will hold a public hearing on the proposed Clean Water Revolving Funds Project Plan improvements for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons.
The hearing will be held at 6:00 P.M. on Tuesday June 15, 2010 at the City Hall located at 333 W. Michigan Avenue, Three Rivers, MI 49093.
The purpose of the proposed improvements addressed in the Project Plan are intended to address the DNRE Violation Notices regarding the Clean Water Plant, reduce Inflow and Infiltration in the collection system by replacing or relining portions of the system, and remove bottlenecks in the existing system.
It is expected that construction of the improvements will include Clean Water Plant improvements involving the primary, preliminary, and secondary treatment, and solids handling; and sanitary sewer collection system projects involving replacement and rehabilitation.
Impacts of the proposed improvements include roadway removal and replacement associated with the sanitary sewer main and lateral replacement projects, minimal surface disturbance for the sanitary sewer main and manhole relining projects, and directional drilling for a sanitary sewer river crossing project; and minor disturbances at the Clean Water Plant for upgrades to and replacement of existing equipment.
The total construction costs for the proposed improvements are estimated at $3,903,700. The proposed improvements could increase the City’s sewer customers’ monthly bills by an amount not to exceed $9.40. This rate does not include the Village of Constantine’s residents and the City will determine the appropriate cost distribution prior to loan closing.
