Wastewater treatment plant getting upgrades after 42 years
Plans to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant in Charlevoix are moving forward.
The Charlevoix City Council accepted an $8.5 million bid to make improvements to the plant Monday night.
The bid is nearly $2 million less than the original estimate.
The plant discharges EPA-acceptable levels of wastewater into Lake Michigan. It hasn't been updated since 1972.
Construction is scheduled to begin sometime this fall.
