LANSING, Mich., Jan. 17, 2023 — State Rep. Jim Haadsma (D-Battle Creek) is thrilled to announce the city of Albion has been awarded a Drinking Water Asset Management (DWAM) Grant for over $400,000.

“I am absolutely thrilled about the clean water grant that has been awarded to Albion,” Haadsma said. “The funds will help sustain a high standard for water quality in our community. This is essential to the health and well-being of residents and also contributes to Michigan’s overall wellness.
