Michigan awards $370K for Ingham County cleanup project

May 13, 2019

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan officials say state funding will help redevelop a contaminated site in Ingham County for construction of a credit union branch.

The Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy is awarding a $370,000 brownfield redevelopment grant to the Delhi Charter Township Brownfield Redevelopment Authority for the project.

The site is the former location of a gasoline station. A leaking underground storage tank system contaminated soil and groundwater, which the grant will help pay to remove.

Michigan State University Federal Credit Union plans to build a branch office on the property.

Officials say the $5.5 million redevelopment will create 15 jobs.

Delhi Charter Township has approved a brownfield plan to help cover other environmental costs at the site.
