Red Run dye testing
Dye testing of sanitary and storm sewer system collection system is quite common.
Illicit connections from the sanitary sewer to the storm water streams are identified.
Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) usually provides the manpower.

Some people may remember the March 8, 2011 article concerning sanitary sewer
testing at the GM Technical Center using green dye and
checking releases into the Bear Creek.
Dangerously high levels of raw sewage were detected
in areas of the stream .
Bear Creek has had prior pollution issues which flow into the Red Run and on
into the Clinton River, all of which eventually flows to Lake St. Clair.
People easily forget fish swim downstream, thru contaminants,
within the Clinton River on their way out to Lake St. Clair.
Tracing local neighborhood drainage via storm drains is next to impossible
for common ordinary citizens of a community. I found this out personally.
The City of Warren WILL NOT release underground piping maps to the public.
You’ll have no luck going to County of Macomb either.
It has all been declared “”you-don’t-need-to-know”” for Homeland Security.
I had my home dye tested via the basement drains by the :
