As Macomb County Public Works Commissioner, Candice S. Miller has responsibility for many of the critical infrastructure components of Macomb County that support the local economy and benefit the quality of life in our communities. She is responsible for the management and upkeep of 952 county drains, all of which eventually drain stormwater into Lake St. Clair. As such, she and her office are able to have tremendous impact on protecting the quality of the lake. As manager of the Macomb Interceptor Drain and co-manager of the Oakland-Macomb Interceptor Drain, she manages a system of pipes and pumps that provide sewer services to well in excess of 1 million people. Other major duties include administration of the Soil Erosion Control Act, review of subdivision plats and management of the Chapaton and Martin Retention Basins. Her office supports ongoing educational efforts to teach both children and adults about the benefits of preserving and protecting our natural resources.
