TO ALL INTERESTED PERSONS IN THE CITY OF ST. CLAIR SHORES:
The City of St. Clair Shores will hold a public hearing for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) loan for the City of St. Clair Shores Martin Sewer Relief program. The purpose of the meeting is to present the Clean Water System Improvements and to receive comments from interested persons.
The purpose of the project is to perform a sewer separation project in the Martin Drain district to limit the flows into the Martin Retention Treatment Basin (RTB) and discharges into Lake St. Clair. The existing stormwater and wastewater are currently collected into a single combined sewer. By separating the combined system into two isolated systems, the Martin RTB will experience an approximate reduction of 8.1 million gallons for a 10-year, 24-hour design storm event. The project consists of three (3) phases.
Phase 1 proposes a 48-inch relief sewer along Sunnydale Street, beginning on the east side of Little Mack Avenue and ending east to Harper Avenue. A small section of relief sewer will run north along Harper Avenue to Sunnydale Street on the east side of Harper towards Jefferson Avenue crossing Jefferson Avenue and continuing down Sunnydale Street to outlet into Lake St. Clair. Phase 1 will consist of approximately 8,241 linear feet of 48-inch sewer, with 12-inch and 15-inch storm sewer laterals
connecting to catch basins to collect the stormwater.
Phase 2 consists of sewer separation in Alexander Street, including approximately 1,708 linear feet of 12-inch sewer. The proposed trunk sewer will collect drainage from tributary areas to 12-inch lateral sewers and catch basins.
Phase 3 consists of sewer separation of Lakeland Street, Lakeland Court, Madison Street, and Madison Court. Flows will discharge north from Lakeland street along an existing easement between Lakeland to Bon Brea Street, along Bon Brea Street heading east to Manhattan Street, then running north along Manhattan Street to an existing manhole that will ultimately outlet to the Alexander Drain. Phase 3 will consist of approximately 2,550 linear feet of 18-inch sewer and 3,428 linear feet of 12-inch sewer. The proposed trunk sewer will collect drainage from tributary areas via 12-inch lateral sewers and catch basins.
The estimated cost of all the projects is approximately $23,037,468. The estimated cost to users will be approximately $54.63 per year.
Copies of the project plan detailing the proposed project will be available for inspection by the general public at the Office of the City Clerk, 27600 Jefferson Avenue, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081 starting Thursday, March 16, 2023. Written comments received before the public hearing will close on Monday, April 3, 2023, at 4:00 PM and will be reviewed for incorporation into the final project plan. Written comments should be sent to the City of St. Clair Shores’s Clerk’s Office located at 27600 Jefferson Avenue, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081.
