Sanitary sewer rehab for township subdivisions
By Lisa Brody
Bloomfield Township trustees unanimously approved the awarding of the contract for the 2021 sanitary sewer rehabilitation project, which will inspect, repair and rehabilitate portions of the sanitary sewer in order to reduce inflow and infiltration in parts of the Williamsburg, Bloomfield Heights No. 7, and Lone Pine Acres subdivisions, at their meeting on Monday, July 12.
Bloomfield Township Director of Engineering and Environmental Services Olivia Olsztyn-Budry said over the last several years efforts have been made to televise with scopes different areas of the sanitary sewers to see if they need work. She said this has been done in part under an administrative consent order and final order of abatement by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE).
Based on work done by the department of public works, it was determined that parts of the Williamsburg, Bloomfield Heights No. 7, and Lone Pine Acres subdivisions should be focused on for the 2021 sanitary sewer rehabilitation project. The lowest bidder, Olsztyn-Budry said, was Granite Inliner, LLC, which has done work for the township before.
Trustees voted 6-0, with trustee Michael Schostak absent, to approve having Granite Inliner perform the necessary work, not to exceed $711,188.
