Rep. Pamela Hornberger (R-Chesterfield Township) has criticized the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) for holding up the Chapaton Pump Station expansion project.

“These bureaucrats need to get their act together, do their job and work with Commissioner Miller (Candace Miller of the Macomb County Public Works Office),” Hornberger said in a post on Facebook

The $30 million project to expand the pump station will reduce sewage overflows into Lake St. Clair by 75 percent, Hornberger said.

“What’s the hold up?” Hornberger asked in her post. 

To begin work, the project needs approval permits from EGLE and from the Army Corps of Engineers. 

Hornberger applauded Miller for her work on the project. 

“She has proven that she works collaboratively to finish projects to benefit our communities,” Hornberger said of Miller. 

EGLE said in a statement that it will meet with Miller and other Macomb County officials later this month to discuss the project and the permitting process, Macomb Daily reports
