Detroit City Council Approves Upper Rouge CSO Tunnel, DWSD Contract PC-764

The Detroit Free Press reports -- "The Detroit City Council approved today on a 6-0 vote a $314 million portion of a $1 billion tunnel system to store sewage and storm runoff during heavy rain with the city up against a Sept. 28 deadline to act or face the loss of low-interest loans [as outlined in a September 24 letter from the MDEQ] that could have cost ratepayers an extra $100 million in interest on construction bonds and put the city in violation of its water pollution permit."
