WASHINGTON – Congressman Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement following the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Office of Rural Development’s award of more than $7 million in grants and loans for Mayville to perform sewer system improvements.


“Improving and upgrading infrastructure – including water and waste disposal systems – is one of my priorities because it’s critical to the well-being of our communities.

Award Details:


Village of Mayville

Loans: $5,241,000

Grants: $1,919,000


Project Description: This Rural Development investment will be used to make improvements to the village of Mayville's sewer system. The collection and treatment system was constructed prior to 1970. In 2015, the state of Michigan awarded a Stormwater Asset Management grant to Mayville to evaluate their sewer system, which identified several areas that needed to be rehabilitated. The proposed project includes: 235 feet of cured-in-place pipelining, 1,285 feet of sewer replacement, manhole repairs, the replacement of two pump stations, upgrades to one pump station, the rehabilitation of lagoon cells 1 and 2, and the construction of lagoon cell 3. The sewer system serves 333 residential and 75 commercial users.
