Congressman Bergman seeks $18 million funding for local sewer project

Seal of the House of Representatives

Congressman Jack Bergman notified the township that he is submitting a $18 million residential sewer project to the appropriate Congressional committee for possible earmark legislation. The project would provide sanitary sewer service for almost 800 homes along or near the Sturgeon and Indian Rivers and Burt Lake.  The township had the largest of the 10 projects selected in his district.  Each Congressman also gets to submit 10 infrastructure projects.  If successful, this amount would be an 80% grant from the EPA. However, the Congressman’s staff wants to make sure the community knows this is a difficult process that may not be successful due to the high number of projects being submitted in the House of Representatives.  You can see all the projects that Congressman Bergman selected to move forward at his web site at
