Gov. Whitmer Awards MI Clean Water Grants

Governor Gretchen Whitmer today awarded more than $2.8 million in grants issued under the MI Clean Water Plan to help six Michigan communities ensure residents have access to safe, clean water. The MI Clean Water Plan provides direct investments for communities and will support over 7,500 Michigan jobs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) awarded the Drinking Water Asset Management (DWAM) grants the City of Lincoln Park $562,637.

"The City of Lincoln Park is excited for this grant opportunity from EGLE. This partnership will give us a chance to upgrade our ability to inventory and assess our system. It will improve our ability to put our resources where they will make the most impact and improve our aging system. We thank Gov. Whitmer and EGLE for selecting Lincoln Park on this much needed grant that will ensure clean drinking water for our residents." - Lincoln Park Mayor Thomas E. Karnes,9309,7-387-90487-578767--,00.html
