The county offered to take over the line where the interceptor is. It will be part of the county’s infrastructure while Swartz Creek will still receive access rights and revenue from its customers, while the county owns, pays for and maintains it, however this will be postponed to determine if a sanitary relocation is of an issue first. — M.R.
