SAGINAW, Mich., Sept. 23, 2021 —  Last week, Carrollton Township Manager Craig Oatten and State Administrator Kelly Green signed a grant of over $600,000 provided by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s MI Clean Water Plan to ensure the safety of Saginaw’s drinking water. The plan aims to strengthen water infrastructure and to ensure the safety of tap water across the state. State Rep. Amos O’Neal (D-Saginaw) issued the following statement in support of the signing of the grant:

“What happened in Flint can never happen again. It’s a stain on the moral conscience of the state and the nation as a whole. I applaud Gov. Whitmer’s MI Clean Water Plan. It will ensure that every city in Michigan has access to clean, safe water, no matter the skin color or income of its residents. I’m very pleased to see that this grant has now been signed and that we can continue to make sure that Saginaw residents have access to high-quality water for generations to come.”
