Shelby Township joins effort to reduce wastewater flowing into damaged sewer

Following the failure of the 11-foot diameter drain near 15 mile and Utica roads in Fraser , Shelby Township is joining an effort spanning approximately 150,000 homes and 300,000 residents in Macomb County to reduce the wastewater flowing into the damaged sewer.

The effort is just to curb any unnecessary wastewater flow such as running sinks or leaking faucets. The damage to the sewer line in Fraser has no effect on the county or township’s water supply, and there are no concerns with water quality resulting from the sewer line failure.
