EAST JORDAN, Mich. (AP) - A community in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula is getting a multi-million upgrade to its wastewater treatment system.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a groundbreaking ceremony takes place Friday on the project for the City of East Jordan. The USDA is providing a $3.4 million grant and $1.6 million loan for the project through a Water and Environmental program.

James Turner, the USDA’s Michigan director for rural development, is among those attending the event in the Charlevoix County community.

The USDA says the most recent upgrades to East Jordan’s system were made in 1989.
