Gilmore Car Museum Sewer System
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.
