LANSING, Mich., July 18, 2022 —  Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced today that six different communities received grants to improve drinking water and upgrade water infrastructures. Romulus received $456,300 toward a financial assistance program, Drinking Water Asset Management (DWAM), to help drinking water suppliers develop and update asset management plans. These funds can be used to identify and remove hazardous materials that are part of the distribution system, including lead service lines. In an expression of gratitude, State Rep. Alex Garza (D-Taylor) issued the following statement:


“We have earned a fantastic opportunity today. I am excited to announce that Romulus water suppliers received substantial funds to improve our community by providing carefully monitored drinking water and updated infrastructure. These funds will make our community safer — clean drinking water is most certainly a right to be grateful for.”
