BAY CITY, MI - Bay City is using a portion of federal funding on its lead line replacement project.
City officials approved a $2 million allocation to the city’s water fund to boost the city’s ongoing lead line replacement project during the regular meeting on Monday, Nov. 1. The money will come from the $31,076,578 allocated to the city by the American Rescue Plan.
The Bay City Times previously reported that the city currently has a 20-year time limit to replace the lead lines, as set forth by the state. A $5 million ‘Drinking Water State Revolving Fund’ state grant is currently being used for the program, however, the additional funding will allow the project to keep moving forward pending the receipt of any other possible sources of funding, said the agenda item.
