Sen. Zorn celebrates grant for Onsted water system improvements

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn on Wednesday applauded a Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) grant to support drinking water system upgrades in the village of Onsted.

“We must continue to invest in our aging infrastructure to protect our water and help ensure that everyone in Michigan has access to clean drinking water,” said Zorn, R-Onsted. “The village’s planned water system improvements will ensure the safety of drinking water for area families and businesses for many years to come. I am grateful to EGLE for its grant assistance in support of our community.”

EGLE awarded a $922,500 Drinking Water Infrastructure grant to the village of Onsted to assist in funding a more than $3 million project to make improvements at the South Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and installation replacement and looping of 9,924 linear feet of water main. The village’s Park Treatment Plant will be demolished upon full completion of the upgraded South WTP.
