“I’m thankful for Governor Whitmer’s investment in Downriver’s needs and her focus on helping us improve our infrastructure. Our office was proud to work with the Governor and EGLE to secure more than $1.5 million for our Downriver communities to update our water systems. Woodhaven, and our neighbors in Southgate and Lincoln Park, will all be able to provide cleaner water to our residents and create great jobs in the process. I’m looking forward to bringing more opportunities like MI Clean Water Plan grants to Downriver and beyond.”
