RELEASE|January 25, 2024

State Rep. Bill G. Schuette (R-Midland) and State Sen. Roger Hauck (R-Union Township) today highlighted an announcement from the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) that will bring crucial infrastructure upgrades to people in the city of Beaverton.

A grant to fund water system improvement projects throughout the city has been approved. The projects will include replacement of old undersized watermains, as well as new watermains at Pearson Avenue, Porter Street, Brown Street to Pearson Street, Tonkin Street, 2nd Street, M18/Ross Street, Terry Diane Street and from the water tower to Terry Diane Street.

The projects also include new source well installation, updated storage tanks and control systems, a new backup generator and new water meters.

“These are critical upgrades to the City of Beaverton and help ensure those families and households living in Beaverton will have important upgrades to their water infrastructure.,” said Schuette, who represents Beaverton as part of the 95th Michigan House District. “Communities like Beaverton are a great place to live and deserve investment from our state government and I continue to fight for them in our appropriations process.”

“People and their families expect and deserve clean, safe water when they turn on their faucet, and these upgrades from older equipment will ensure that continues to be the case,” said Hauck, who represents Beaverton as part of the 34th Michigan Senate District. “This funding will help Beaverton make key improvements for residents.”

“I want to thank Rep. Schuette and Sen. Hauck for their help in securing this important grant for Beaverton,” said Karen Moore, Chair of the Gladwin County Board of Commissioners, who represents Beaverton on the Gladwin County Commission. “This is an important grant for the Gladwin community and I look forward to working with the City of Beaverton and our state officials in its implementation.”

The federal American Rescue Plan grant administered through EGLE will cover an estimated project cost of $10.3 million, with nearly $1.9 million for planning and design and roughly $8.4 million for construction and implementation.
