In response to a rate increase for sewer services for residents of the city of Wixom, the Milford Township Board at its Wednesday, Oct. 17 meeting approved a reallocation of a sewer expense to the township.
Township Supervisor Don Green said that the township received a new calculation of $54 a month per residential equivalent unit (REU) from Wixom, so he proposed that the operation and maintenance cost that the township is paying the city for the South End Sewer be reduced from 50 percent to 25 percent.
Green said that there are more users on the South End system, so the costs are reallocated.
“The South End covers the Kensington Metropark border on the west to the Wixom boundary on east, and it includes all of our commercial and industrial property on the south end and one major residential development,” Green said. “We dump our wastewater into the Wixom wastewater plant.”
Green added that an REU adds up to about 315 gallons per day.
