NFE was retained by the State of Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget (DTMB) and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to conduct a comprehensive study, design evaluation and construction implementation of below ground sewer and water systems at eight state parks, including:
- Burt Lake State Park
- Petosky State Park
- Mitchell State Park
- Seven Lakes State Park
- Otsego Lake State Park
- Ionia State Park
- Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area
- Hayes State Park
The overall goal of the Statewide Utility Study and Implementation project was to evaluate each park’s existing ground water and sewer infrastructure; make recommendations for short-term and long-term solutions; provide preliminary layouts and cost for proposed upgrades, repairs and improvements; and finally implement the construction portion of the proposal. Specifically, NFE focused on water wells, water distribution systems, sanitary systems, lagoons, septic systems, barrier-free access and site drainage.
Each park project was successfully completed within, or under, budget and schedule.
