The storied battle over a sanitary sewer system in Worth Township is entering another stage. In an August 1st letter, homeowners and businesses were told that the municipal sanitary sewer system is available for connection. The letter, according to the Worth Township Board, serves as a notice of availability to property owners in the mandatory municipal sanitary sewer district as directed by the Michigan Supreme Court. Property owners must now fill out an application and pay a $100 permit fee to the township to initiate a hook-up. Excavation and construction of installing a waste pipe from the home or business to the public sanitary sewer lead at the edge of the road is an additional private expense. The Township also explained in the letter that property owners can make arrangements with a licensed and insured plumber or builder that is registered with Worth Township. The township notes in the letter that filling out an application and paying the permit fee does not constitute initiating a hook-up. Property owners will be contacted when their application is approved.
