An Engineering Merit Award was presented Tetra Tech (Ann Arbor) and the Village of Dundee for work on the Sewer Overflow Control Program. The project achieved the control of untreated sewer overflows through the construction of relief sewers, a pump station and a 1.5 mg storage tank. Two grants and a low interest loan were obtained to minimize the fiscal impact of the project upon rate payers. The completed project has protected public health, improved the environment and allowed growth in the community to continue.
