Headworks/Pump Station Projects

We’ve set up a construction update page so you know what is happening with the upgrades to the wastewater treatment system. The force main project is complete. Currently the headworks of the treatment plant are being upgraded. Pump station improvements in Grand Haven and for the pump station on Division Street in Spring Lake will begin at a later date.

These projects will have less impact on the public and will move at a slower pace than the force main project. Updates will be provided every 3-4 weeks.
