NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

The hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, June 8, 2015 at the following location: Village of Armada Municipal Office, 74274 Burk Street, Armada, MI 48005.
The purpose of the proposed project is to rehabilitate defects in the Village of Armada's sewers and manholes, as well as remedy deficiencies at the Waste Water Treatment Plant and the Colonial Road Pump Station.
Project construction will involve: cured-in-place pipe and manhole lining, point repair and joint grouting of manholes; replacement and upgrades to equipment and systems based on existing operational and safety deficiencies at the Waste Water Treatment Plant and Colonial Road Pump Station; demolition of the existing sludge handling building and associated storage tanks, and grading and drainage improvements at the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
Impacts of the proposed project include: minor earth, traffic, and operational disturbances during construction; improved efficiency of treatment and mechanical systems; and reduction in emergency maintenance expenditures.
The estimated cost to users for the proposed project is estimated to be $2,500,000 and will be financed with a low interest loan through the State Revolving Fund from the Michigan Department Environmental Quality. This loan will be paid back with system user fees.
