Independence Township Receives 2022 Source Water Protection Grant

Independence Township was 1 of 30 communities to receive a 2022 Source Water Protection grant from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).  This grant money will allow the Township to continue our public education efforts through the development of additional videos and flyers on PFAS and other contaminants the pose harm to our drinking water supply. 

We are excited to be continuing our efforts and sharing this information with you.  If you’re interested in hearing more about our program, or if you’d like us to present to your homeowner/lake association or group on wellhead protection issues, please contact the Public Works Department at: (248) 625-8222.
