On August 14, 2012, the Village of Pentwater held a groundbreaking for its new Clean Water Plant.
The welcome and project history were given by Village President, Juanita Pierman. Project descriptions were given by Village Manager, Jim Miller. Prein&Newhof followed up with a thank-you to the Village, for allowing us to be a part of their community, and to Todd Maclean, USDA Rural Development, for providing funding for the project, and leading us through the countless paperwork required. We then introduced the contractors and asked them to provide a brief schedule of their work (beginning and completion dates).
The “shovel ceremony” pictures were taken of the two groups we provided earlier. After the photos, attendees stayed around and mingled with the State legislators, RD staff, and contractors. Refreshments were available during the whole event, which took place in the mowed lawn under the shade of an oak tree at the proposed Clean Water Plant site.
