Southeast Water Storage Rates
Oakland Township is required by the Michigan Department of Environment Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) to improve the Southeast Oakland Township drinking water system to improve water system reliability and for the protection of public health. Improvements include the construction of water storage and the addition of chlorine as a disinfectant. The Township has been working for several years on these improvements. A 500,000-gallon water storage tank with associated booster station and other improvements are being constructed at the Township-owned Knorrwood Pines wellhouse property. The project is being funded through a cost recovery factor on customer water rates. The Township Board approved the water charge for debt service recovery of $83.00 per 1,000 cubic feet at the June 14 board meeting. The project is anticipated to be substantially completed next year.
