The City of Reed City will hold a public hearing on the proposed Reed City Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements project for the purpose of receiving comments from interested persons.

The hearing will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 26, 2021 at the following location:

Reed City – City Offices
227 East Lincoln Avenue,
Reed City, MI 49677

The purpose of the proposed project is to make improvements to the existing treatment system. The improvements will allow for the continued treatment of sanitary sewage throughout the service area in accordance with the current NPDES permit.

Project elements include demolition and removal of the south treatment plant, construction of two influent pump stations, modifications to the influent equalization tanks, construction of a headworks building, modifications to the existing Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment system, the addition of tertiary filters, construction of an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system, chemical feed system improvements, site work and a new outfall to the Hersey River.

Long term positive impacts from the project include improved reliability of the treatment system and improved treatment efficiencies. Short term impacts related to construction activities could include increased construction traffic and disturbances in the immediate vicinity of the WWTP site. There are no expected long-term, negative impacts.

The total estimated project cost is $14,000,000. The project cost will be funded through a low interest Michigan Department of Environment, Great lakes, and Energy (EGLE) State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan.

Copies of the plan detailing the proposed project will be available for public inspection on and after March 26, 2021 for inspection on the Reed City Website ( and at the following location:
