WWTF Lagoon Failure

Notification Regarding the Copper Harbor
Waste Water Treatment Facility

During the weekend of March 3rd there was a failure in the primary
lagoon which resulted in a decrease of the level. On Monday the 5th the
DEQ and the engineering firm, OHM, were contacted. The WUP Health
Department has also been notified.

The DEQ has been extremely helpful and is investigating the situation.
However, the primary lagoon is covered by an enormous amount of
snow and ice. This is making it impossible to get inside to see exactly
what the problem is at present.

At this time, all influent is being directed into the secondary lagoon.
Developments will be posted on the website when they arise.

Cardboard Recycling

Grant Township has entered into a new cardboard recycling program with Eagle Harbor Township.
There will be a cardboard collection trailer at the dumpster in Copper Harbor on regular dumpster days; Mon, Wed & Fri from 3-5 pm. You may dispose of your boxes and cardboard items but please be aware a few rules apply. The boxes need to be broke down, there should be no greasy, food tainted boxes (pizza, meat juices, etc) and no waxed cardboard items.
This program will greatly decrease the number of boxes going into the landfill and save you money on orange bags.
