JACKSON, Mich (WLNS) – The renovation of the historic Cascades in Jackson County is getting a boost from a local business.
Emmons Service, Inc., a local waste hauler, is donating $10,000 to the Cascades Renovation Project.
The money will go towards Phase II of the six phases that make up the renovation project.
During this stage the electrical, mechanical and plumbing that make up the core of The Cascades will be updated.
That will include the construction of a new electrical and pumping building and new piping.
It will also include the design and installation of two splash pads for the public.
During the first phase of the project a wall that blocked the view of the waterfall was removed and a fence has been put in its place as part of the $9.5 million project.
Raised amphitheater seating to watch the falls also has been removed.
The Cascades is a 457 acre park that includes a man-made, illuminated waterfall with musical accompaniment that has been an attraction since 1932.
