Gilmore Car Museum Sewer System

Gilmore Car Museum
Hickory Corners, MI

Project Overview

Existing septic systems were starting to fail at one of Michigan’s largest collections of classic and vintage automobile museums, and combined, they took up a significant amount of space which limited future expansion at the 90-acre Gilmore Car Museum. The non-profit educational institution decided to replace failing septic systems with a new gravity flow sewer system to service a dozen buildings.

F&V provided utility master planning, design, permitting and construction services for construction of a new sanitary sewer and a pump station. F&V Construction also managed the project’s construction.

The new sewer system enabled the museum to abandon several individual septic systems and free up space for expansion. A unique feature was the new sewer system connecting into the Southwest Barry County Sewer & Water Authority system which a gray water system.
