Sewer Connection Permit Application

June 24th, 2019 Sewer Update

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WORTH TOWNSHIP SEWER CONNECTIONS ARE NOT YET AVAILABLE even though the Sanilac County Health Department has their website up and running for permits from them.

The contractors do not yet have the ground water infiltration issues corrected.

We will post an update on our website when we are ready to start connections.

June 10th, 2019 Sewer Update

Upon completion of the installation of the sewer mains they are initially pressure tested and inspected with video cameras.  When the sewer mains have all been installed and have passed pressure and video inspection the lift stations are monitored to see how much ground water is infiltrating into the sanitary sewer system.

Currently the amount of ground water infiltrating the sanitary sewer system exceeds the allowable amount per the contract with the contractors that installed the sanitary sewers.  The engineers are working with the contractors to find the areas of infiltration and bring them into compliance.  The contractors are required to meet the ground water infiltration requirements as specified within their contract.

No one can hook up to the sewers until the ground water is within the allowable amount of ground water infiltration.  We will notify property owners via the U.S. Postal Service and post it on our website once the sanitary sewer system is able to be connected to.

Worth Township and Prein & Newhof initially requested to have under drains installed throughout the sewer district.  The USDA wouldn't allow us to do this stating that this was a sewer project not a drainage project.  Due to all of the ground water problems we started having last Spring we worked with the MDEQ, Road Commission, and USDA and got approval to put under drains in where we are having severe ground water issues.  We are currently de-watering these areas and working on installing under drains which to help alleviate the excessive ground water problem.

We have had an abnormally high amount of rain this Spring including this week which we are forecasted to have rain 5 out of the next 7 days.
