FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Genesee County has awarded a $13.2 million contract to build a water treatment facility on a new pipeline from Lake Huron meant to serve the area.

The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1IgZd36 ) reports the treatment facility will be built near the Genesee and Lapeer county line. It will process water from a pipeline being built by the Karegnondi Water Authority, which is a partnership between Flint and Genesee County.

Flint would switch from using water from the Flint River, which it has done for more than a year after the city cut ties with Detroit’s system. The use of river water has raised concerns about water quality.

Raw water is expected to be delivered to communities by 2016, with each one treating the water or using it raw for business or agriculture.
