September 19, 2011

The Red Run spans Oakland and Macomb Counties

Detailed cost breakdown of current improvement projects 2011
upon the Red Run can be seen and printed at the following link :
It gets into purchase order numbers, line items, and tracks pennies,
~ nothing is rounded off, even if it involves millions of dollars $$$$

Some items were a bit tough to find on the internet
since both counties are involved in improvements.

The claim from the Drain Commission is:
~ during heavy rainfall, high volumes of combined sewage
(typically more than 93 percent storm water) exceed the
outlet capacity to Detroit systems, causing excess flow
to be diverted to the George W. Kuhn Retention Treatment Basin
where it disinfected prior to discharge to the Red Run Drain.

As 2011 approaches the fall months and the weather cools,
hopefully heavy rainfall events won’t smell quite as bad
along the Red Run for residents of Warren near Dequindre Road.
