The DEQ and SAW program

November 21, 2014

Grants via the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)
from the Stormwater, Asset Management, and Wastewater (SAW) program
will provide assistance for developing, planning and design.

The SAW grants are funded via the Michigan Department of Treasury
as general obligation debt as authorized in the Great Lakes Water Quality Bond.
The SAW program was signed into law on Jan. 2, 2013,
and operates alongside the established State Revolving Fund
and Strategic Water Quality Initiatives Fund loan programs,
as well as the S2 Grant Program,
to support water pollution control efforts in Michigan.

Oakland County is forced to “”drain”” itself into Macomb County
since Macomb County is on Lake St. Clair, at a lower elevation.
Perhaps Oakland County needs to pay a premium, a usage fee, a tax,
to consistently flow stormwater into Macomb County ?
