Oakland Macomb Interceptor Drain - Macomb County Petitions Court to Order a Repair Schedule

On June 12, 2009, Macomb County filed a motion in U.S. District Court requesting that Judge John Feikens enter an order that would establish a schedule for the repairs to the Oakland Macomb Interceptor (OMI) Drain. The details of this project were reported in an earlier post.

[Note: While a construction compliance order will make it easier for Macomb and Oakland Counties to secure State Revolving Fund (SRF) funding, it suggests that Judge John Feikens' 32 year oversight of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department will not only continue, but expand northward into Oakland and Macomb Counties. Is this sort of thing a good idea? ]
