Birmingham renews sanitary drain agreement

By Kevin Elliott


Birmingham is renewing its agreement with the 15 communities that make up the Evergreen-Farmington Sanitary Drainage District to establish a new Chapter 20 drain.


The agreement updates the city’s 1989 inter-municipal agreement that includes an apportionment of costs for initial and future projects under the Chapter 20 drain code. The agreement is overseen by the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner.


The Evergreen-Farmington district includes combined sewers that drain into the Birmingham treatment facilities at Linden Park, Lincoln Hills golf course and Beverly Hills at Evergreen and Beverly roads. A small number of sanitary sewers discharge directly into the Evergreen-Farmington Sanitary Drain.


The agreement was approved by city commissioners, 6-0, with commissioner Clinton Baller absent.
