From 2016 to 2019, the City of Lowell analyzed all stormwater sewer and sanitary sewer connections as part of a grant from the State of Michigan Stormwater Asset Management Program. The city also inventoried all connections of our water distribution system. Through this analysis, we prepared a comprehensive stormwater, sanitary sewer, and water distribution repair and replacement program. Shortly thereafter, the City of Lowell completed a seven-year Street Asset Management Program. This program allowed us to more freely move our Public Act 51 (gas tax) funds designated for roads between our 6.89 miles of major streets and our 13.39 miles of local streets. It was imperative to review the utilities underground, as one of the worst things a municipality can do is replace a street, only to have to replace it again a few years later due to the need to replace the underground utilities.
