RV Dump Station Closure

The City was able to operate an RV dump station at the wastewater plant for many years. Unfortunately, this facility is not designed with a holding tank or the ability to pretreat prior to the waste being processed. EGLE has linked the dump station to process issues with the facility that have led to permit violations. The estimated cost of upgrading the facility to comply would be approximately a quarter million dollars. In light of this and other considerations, the City Council has agreed that the RV dump station should remain closed. We understand that this is an inconvenience for some, but it is necessary to keep our permit in good standing and avoid future violations. Please plan to seek an alternative location for dumping RV waste this camping season.
