GRSD Sewer Authority

 

STORM DRAINS AND SANITARY SEWERS

The City is served by two types of sewers:

(1) Storm drains (also called storm sewers) are used for outdoor rainwater runoff and water from sump pumps, eave downspouts, footing and floor drains.  Stormwater should be sent to the storm drains, not sanitary sewers.  In the City, storm drains are maintained by the Street Department.

(2) Sanitary sewers are used for wastewater from toilets, sinks, indoor showers, clothes washers, dishwashers, and garbage disposals.  Wastewater should be plumbed into the sanitary sewer, not storm drains.  In the City the sanitary sewer collection system is owned by the City and maintained by the Street Department, with assistance from the Galien River Sanitary District (GRSD) Sewer Authority (who is responsible for forcemains and wastewater treatment.) Regulations concerning sewage are found in City Ordinances. Sanitary sewer service lines are the responsibility of the property owner.

 


 

GRSD SEWER AUTHORITY BOARD

The Galien River Sanitary District (GRSD) Sewer Authority is an intergovernmental agency responsible for wastewater treatment in this area.  It is controlled by a Board with representatives from the City of Bridgman, City of New Buffalo, Chikaming Township, Lake Charter Township, and New Buffalo Township.


The Board ordinarily meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 10:00 AM ET, in the meeting room at Chikaming Township Center, 13535 Red Arrow Highway, Harbert, Michigan 49115.  It is important to check with the City Clerk (269-469-1500) to confirm meeting dates, times, and details.
