Western Townships Utilities Authority (WTUA): Abe Munfakh was the Principal in Charge and Principal Manager of the wastewater transportation system for WTUA, which consists of the Townships of Canton, Plymouth, and Northville in western Wayne County Michigan. The residents of these Townships have enjoyed the long term benefits of this $87 million project which took five years to complete. This project, managed by Abe Munfakh, was the largest environmental enhancement of its kind in Michigan at the time of construction in 2000. Merrill S Bailey Bridge Replacement: This project in the City of Norton Shores, Michigan was completed under the direct supervision of Abe A. Munfakh on schedule and under budget. Because of the importance of this bridge to the community, proper management of its construction was crucial to the contractor, the Michigan Department of Transportation who provided funding, and the City of Norton Shores. This project received an Award of Merit form the Consulting Engineers Council of Michigan. Water Treatment Plant, Village of Lexington, Michigan: Under the direction of Abe A. Munfakh, construction of water system improvements was completed in the Village of Lexington, Michigan which included water treatment, distribution, and storage. This project serviced the Village of Lexington, Lexington Township, and the Township of Worth in the thumb area of the state. The project consisted of expanding the existing treatment plant, extending the intake into Lake Huron, design and construction of ten miles of water main varying in size from 6 to 12 inches in diameter, expansion of the treatment plant, and construction of an elevated water tank. City of Fenton Water Treatment System Expansion: Abe A. Munfakh supervised the application and receipt of a $9.7 million low interest loan from the State of Michigan Drinking Water Revolving Loan Program to construct a new water treatment plant and replace major transmission mains. The project was designed to remove arsenic and provide soft water with a low iron content. The $11.2 million project was the largest ever undertaken by the City of Fenton, a growing community in Genesee and Livingston Counties, Michigan. The expertise of Abe Munfakh in project management and his experience in working with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality resulted in an award winning project and accomplishment of the objectives of the City of Fenton. City of Marshall Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion: Expansion of the existing activated sludge wastewater treatment plant to provide service to the City of Marshall into the year 2020 was competed under the direction and supervision of Abe Munfakh. The skilled management techniques of Abe Munfakh resulted in a project that was completed on time and with a considerable savings to the community. Coldwater Lake Sanitary System Collection and Treatment: The Coldwater Lake Utility Authority contracted to design and construct a large wastewater collection system including pump stations, a gravity sanitary system, a pressure sanitary system, and a major interceptor to transfer collections from Coldwater and Long Lakes for treatment and disposal over agricultural land. This was the first project of its kind in the State of Michigan to utilize privately owned and operated farms for ultimate disposal of wastewater by spray irrigation. The concept was unique and the highly restricted water courses limited the amount of discharge to the Great Lakes area. Abe Munfakh worked closely with the three communities involved and with the Michigan Department of Environment Quality to apply for and receive grant funding for this project under the Rural Development Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This project, totaling more than $6 million, was completed on time and within budget. Lake George Regional Sewer District Development: Lake George lies on the border between the State of Michigan and Indiana. This project was designed to collect wastewater from the homes around the lake, both in Michigan and Indiana, and convey it through a system of pump stations to an existing plant in Ovid Township, Branch County, Michigan, which was expanded to provide treatment. Because of the geographic formation of the lake, design of two distinct and separate systems was required -- a grinder system for Indiana, and a gravity system for Michigan. Abe Munfakh successfully directed the very challenging process of obtaining approvals, securing permits, and meeting various requirements from two states.
