DETROIT (AP) – A groundbreaking has been held for a $274-million pipeline that eventually will supply Lake Huron water to Flint and Genesee County.

It may take at least two years for the pipeline project to be completed. The pipeline will be part of a regional system and is expected to provide untreated water to more than 2,400 square miles.

Communities will be connected as the pipeline is completed in their areas.

Genesee County pays Detroit about $15-million each year for water.
