Jackson’s water infrastructure is getting $16.5 million in funding from the State of Michigan. The funding comes from American Rescue Plan funds, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funds, and the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan.
The funding will help accelerate the replacement effort and lower the overall cost burden on the City of Jackson. Over the next 30 years, the city plans to replace more than 11,000 service lines, using $9 million of the funding for lead service line replacements.
Qualification for these infrastructure funds is due to Jackson’s status as a disadvantaged community with many lead service lines.
