Send Us Your UNDERGROUND Photos!

In light of the on-going Flint Water Crisis and the issues it has raised across the state, members of the media and Michigan residents are getting an eye-opening education on the deteriorating condition of our overall underground infrastructure.

The Flint Water Crisis has shined a spotlight on the extremely negative consequences of not properly investing in our underground pipes and sewers, the very mechanisms that provide and distribute the water each and every one of us depends on. No one at the state, federal or local level wants to see a Flint-like crisis in any other city in Michigan.

In an effort to do our part, and to continue the dialogue and education on this important issue, we are asking all MITA members, particularly those of you who work on the underground side of the industry, to take high-resolution photos of the pipes and sewers you are working on. With these photos, we can educate the Legislature, the media and Michigan residents about the dire needs of our underground infrastructure.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so please take a few minutes at your job sites to snap a high-resolution photo of particularly poor pipes and underground systems that are in need of investment, and email them to Your assistance with this important educational project is greatly appreciated! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the MITA office and ask for Mariam Robinson, Outreach Coordinator. She can also be reached at 517-347-8336.
