How bad is the Red Run ? – Real Bad

August 17, 2011

The Red Run won’t be used for recreation anytime soon
– at the very least you don’t want to stir the sediment.

Guess what – in a major rain storm the sediment gets violently
transported into the Clinton River and on to Lake St. Clair.

2011 Combined Sewer Overflows Red Run

2011 Combined Sewer Overflows Red Run

The city of St. Clair’s water intake maintains detection systems
capable of monitoring for 28 toxic industrial chemicals.
A network of monitoring machines provides protection for water plants
at Port Huron, Marysville, St. Clair, East China Township, Marine City,
Algonac, Ira Township, New Baltimore, Mount Clemens,
Grosse Pointe Farms, Detroit and Wyandotte.

That’s a pretty sad state of affairs for drinking water.
