Drain Inspections To Benefit Michigan Great Lakes

Drain Inspections To Benefit Michigan Great Lakes

The health and well-being of Lake St. Clair is the focus of a new project being launched by the Macomb County Office of Public Works in summer 2017. The office will be conducting a series of tests on three major storm water drains in St. Clair Shores to seek out and eliminate any pollution sources in those drains.

Work continues on time and on budget on the 15 Mile Sewer repair project.

As of July 20, the crews digging the 300-foot-by-28-foot shaft have reached more than 50 feet down and are in the process of removing the collapsed pipe.

The $10,000 project, completed over a week in late May, means that several thousand gallons of combined sewage overflows will not be dumped into Lake St. Clair during a heavy rain. And while that alone will not make the lake perfectly pristine, it is part of a larger program of many small steps aimed at cleaning up the lakes.
