The Interceptor, Warren, and the Red Run

April 1, 2012

WasteWater treatment plants – and – StormWater Retention basins
are 2 very separate things.

The Red Run is a StormWater drain operating off of the Kuhn Retention Basin.

The Oakland Macomb Interceptor is a 12-foot 9-inch diameter pipe
for transporting sewage from houses and commercial buildings to
Detroit Water and Sewage Department for treatment and disposal.

A 53-foot diameter access shaft in Warren is located in the ITC corridor
north of Common Road between Schoenherr and Hoover.

Former mayor of Warren, Mark Steenbergh works now for the massive sewer division servicing 11 Macomb County communities.

The Oakland Macomb Interceptor (OMI) Project is over 21 miles long
and services 830,000 residents living in 24 communities.
The estimated project cost of the repairs is $200,000,000 taking
approximately 5 years and is financed through the
Michigan Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund.
