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.
