Zorn applauds state loan for Tecumseh wastewater treatment improvements

LANSING, Mich. Sen. Dale Zorn on Tuesday applauded the approval of a state low-interest loan to Tecumseh to help make needed sewer and wastewater treatment improvements.

“To protect our water resources and the health of our residents, it is critical that we continue to help communities invest in important public infrastructure,” said Zorn, R-Ida. “I applaud the city of Tecumseh for working with the state to secure the necessary funds to make these key infrastructure improvements.”

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy has announced the approval of a $1.76 million loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to Tecumseh to increase reliability of the city’s wastewater treatment plant and the sanitary sewer system.

The funds will support the rehabilitation of the sanitary sewer and the replacement of an electrical transformer and a Cyl-Tec pump station.

Michigan’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund is a low-interest loan financing program that assists qualified local municipalities with the construction of needed water pollution control facilities.
