Will Oakland/Macomb look North for H2O ?

April 3, 2014

There will be a new water intake facility on Lake Huron
and over 60 miles of pipeline, referred to as the
Karegnondi Water Authority for Genessee County and Flint.

Will the counties of Oakland and Macomb tap in as well ?
A new intake will add overcapacity;
hence clean water availability from the north.
This would effectively cut reliance and payments to DWSD.

Flint will be relying on its own
water treatment plant and water drawn
from the Flint River as early as April 17, 2014.

KWA completed its $220 million bond sale a few days ago.
Debt maturation date is set to November 2043
priced to yield 4.89 percent.
The securities are rated A2 by Moody’s Investor Service
