All roads within Genesee County, with the exception of cities, are owned and maintained by Genesee County Road Commission. When there is a snowstorm the lowest priority, by necessity, are the subdivision streets. After severe storms it is possible that it may be several days before the County is able to work their way into the subdivisions. For this reason Grand Blanc Township has become involved in snow removal. Our goal is to keep all dedicated or public subdivision roads open and to do so in a timely manner.
Sewer is available to 99% of the parcels in the township. Through a series of hundreds of miles of sewer lines and sewerage lift stations all of the waste is collected and sent to the Genesee County treatment plant in Montrose. All sewer lines and appurtenances within the township boundaries are repaired and maintained by township personnel.
Grand Blanc Township owns and maintains our own water system. Customers of the Public water system receive water purchased from the city of Detroit through Genesee County Water and Waste. The water in the township system is tested at a level beyond that required by the State Department Of Environmental Quality to insure that we deliver the highest quality water possible to our residents.
Sewer Preventative Maintenance
In 1999 we established a preventive maintenance program for the sanitary sewer systems. This program entails a number of specific goals.
- The cleaning of all sanitary sewer on a rotation basis.
- The televising of several miles of sanitary sewer each year.
- Flow monitors at each pump station.
- Flow monitoring in two of three subdivisions each year
This program is part of an ongoing effort to develop a sanitary sewer master plan for the Township.
