(LANSING) – Two communities in Southern Michigan are receiving funds to make their water safer.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Monday that 15 cities, villages and townships around the State were awarded funds under the MI Clean Water Plan Grants. The plan is a $500 million investment to help rebuild Michigan's water infrastructure to help provide clean, affordable water to Michiganders through investments in communities.

There are two different grants that are being awarded. The Drinking Water Asset Management Grant is available to assist water supplies in asset management plan development or updates. The Affordability And Planning Grant is available to any community water supply and local unit of government to assist in planning and or rate studies.

The City of Three Rivers is receiving $274,775 from the Drinking Water Asset Management Grant. The Village of Union City is going to get $191,760.

In addition, the City of Plainwell will get $269,950 and the Village of Berrien Springs $215,000 from the same fund.

All total, over $2 million in grants were awarded during this announcement.
