On July 13, 2023, the City of Cheboygan and the Michigan Department of Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) held a press event to announce the completion of the new wastewater treatment plant. In attendance was Senator John Damoose, EGLE Deputy Director James Clift, Cheboygan Councilwoman Diane Mills, City Manager Dan Sabolsky, DPW Director Jason Karmol, and NLEA’s Community and Economic Development Coordinator, Chris Bauer.
The completion of the plant marks a major step forward in modernizing the water and wastewater system in the city, which will provide the area with the capacity to expand the area it serves. Over the next few years the city will be investing additional funds to add an additional water tower, and replace sewer lines to reduce infiltration and improve system performance. This will provide the foundation for additional economic and residential development in the Cheboygan and greater Cheboygan area.
