Developer to cover 62.5 percent of the cost of upgrading Union Township’s sewer system

  1. 1. Developer to cover 62.5 percent of the cost of upgrading Union Township’s sewer system In Michigan, work has begun on the first phase of a planned upgrade of Union Township’s sewer system to keep up with current and expected growth. Campus Crest Communities of Charlotte, N.C., led by CEO Ted Rollins plans to build 216 units of high-end student housing off Isabella Road between Bluegrass and Broomfield roads. Since the current pumping station serving that neighborhood doesn’t have enough capacity to handle that, the developer has agreed to pick up about 62.5 percent of the cost of upgrading. According to The Morning Sun of Central Michigan, Crews from Porath Contractors of Houghton Lake have begun work on adding a 4,000-foot-long, 12-inch sewer main along Deerfield Road. The $274,000 project will add substantial capacity to handle sewage flows from the apartment complexes along Deerfield Road just south of the Mt. Pleasant city limits, as well as from other residential development in the southwest part of the township. Improvements at the township’s Lift Station No. 2 on Isabella Road are expected to start soon, as well. RCL Construction of Sanford was the low bidder at $183,700. And with even more development expected in Union Township, plans are being made for an upgrade of another pumping station to handle that.
