FY 2024 Clean Water State Revolving Fund Project Plan


The City of Muskegon Heights will hold a public hearing on proposed improvements and upgrades to its Wastewater Collection System for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons.  The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. on April 24, 2023, at the Muskegon Heights City Hall, 2724 Peck Street, Muskegon Heights, MI 49441.  The meeting can also be accessed remotely through the City’s website where a link to the meeting is found. 

The purpose of the proposed improvements is to provide a more reliable and resilient wastewater collection system, replace aging and structurally deficient sewer infrastructure, and reduce stormwater infiltration and inflow.  The City has prepared a Project Plan as required to apply for low interest loans and grants through the State of Michigan’s Clean Water Revolving Fund to complete these improvements.  

Impacts of the proposed project include typical sanitary sewer main construction, and temporary disruptions such as noise, dust, and traffic congestion caused by construction activities.  The benefit will be a more reliable wastewater collection system for customers and reduce the chance of emergency failures and repairs. 

The estimated cost of implementing the proposed multi-year Project Plan is approximately $37,000,000.  Year 1 (FY 2024) of the Project Plan will cost an estimated $21,000,000, which results in an estimated  cost to the average residential customer of $23 per month.  The amount of any rate increase will depend on grants that may be provided, and how many of the projects are constructed.

A copy of the plan detailing the proposed project is available for inspection at the following location by April 10, 2023:

Public comments at the hearing or written comments received before the hearing record is closed on April 24, 2023, will receive responses in the final project plan.  Written comments should be sent to the City Clerk’s office at the address above.
