Flood advisory July 28, 2011
The surrounding counties have already dumped 3.6 billion gallons
of pollution discharges in 2011 and it just continues this summer.
Oakland County officials sent 1.6 billion gallons of treated sewage
gushing into the Red Run Drain over a 54-hour period on May 25-27, 2011.
Officials say the discharges are necessary to prevent
sewer backups that would flood thousands of home basements.
