The purpose of the proposed project is to provide the Township’s sanitary sewer customers with a more dependable sanitary collection system by implementing improvements, repairs, and replacement of its aging system infrastructure.  The improvements are a result of the Township’s asset management and capital improvement plans.  The project includes construction of a new interceptor sewer along Platt Road, US-12, Textile Road, Crane Road, Hickory Woods Park, and Munger Road.  The project also includes abandonment of three existing pump stations (Platt/Merritt, Ashford Village, and Meadowview), abandonment of an existing interceptor sewer below the US-23 and US-12 interchange, and rehabilitation of the remaining interceptor sewer along US-12.

Impacts of the proposed project include those experienced by typical construction projects including dust, noise, and disruptions in local road usage.  The impacts are expected to be temporary in nature and, after construction, the affected areas will be restored to normal conditions.

The average equivalent cost opinion to residential users for the proposed project is estimated to be $7.43 per month.

A copy of the project plan can be accessed electronically on the Township’s website at www.pittsfield-mi.gov.  Hard copy of the project plan report detailing the proposed project can be reviewed by appointment only at the above address between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning on April 26, 2021 until May 26, 2021 by calling (734) 822-2105.

Written comments received before May 26, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. will receive responses on the final project plan.  Written comments should be sent via mail to the Utilities Department, 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48108 or via email to utilities@pittsfield-mi.gov.  Individuals with disabilities may participate in the meeting by contacting the Clerk’s Office at clerk@pittsfield-mi.gov or (734) 822-3120 sufficiently in advance of the meeting to make accommodations.
