General Information

The Grandville Clean Water Plant serves the communities of Grandville, Georgetown Township, Hudsonville, Jamestown Township, and a portion of Blendon Township. Over 19,000 residential, commercial, and industrial customers use, on average, around 6 million gallons of water on a day to day basis.


Once water has been used in these communities, a network of over 300 miles of sanitary sewer lines transport the used water, which is now called wastewater, to the Clean Water Plant. Using physical and biological treatment, the plant cleans the wastewater so it can be returned to nature in a safe manner to protect the watershed environment.


Emergencies And Sewer Back-UpsShould you have an emergency related to wastewater treatment or experience a sewer back-up, please call (616) 538-1990 during the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM on weekdays.  All other times of the day or on weekends and holidays call 911.

Hunting And FishingThe City of Grandville Clean Water Plant is located very near the river and two creeks which provides excellent habitat for waterfowl, deer, rabbits and squirrels, all of which can be seen at different times of the year. However, as the plant grounds are inside the City limits no hunting is allowed.
