We Must Invest in Our Future

Jim's goal is to keep the first inch of rainwater out of the sewer system by encouraging and working towards the installation of green infrastructure that captures and filters water naturally. This not only saves our environment, but saves money by:

  • Dramatically lowering sewer treatment costs.
  • Reducing the risk of flooding. The less water that enters the system, the less chance there is of flooding.
  • Limiting sewer overflow into our lakes, rivers, and streams.  Oakland County is home to some of the greatest lakes, not only in our state, but in our country. It is essential that we protect them.
