Seperating StormWater Drains

April 16, 2012

The George W. Kuhn – Retention Treatment Basin Project –
Keep in mind what it was meant to do :
It separated many of the storm water outlets
from the Retention Treatment Basin
and redirected them into actual storm drains.

This reduced the chances of spilling
combined sewage into the Red Run Drain.

Stormwater isn’t that wonderful
– fertilizer/pesticide runoff, spilled petroleum products,
pet waste in backyards, leaking septic fields,
archaic illegal hookups in old buildings, etc., etc.
– keep stormwater from being anything but clean.
Anything people pour into the roadway water grates
or spill/dump on the ground, gets combined with
whatever the rain drops touch.
This is what goes into the Clinton River via Red Run Drain.

I doubt anyone would fill a canteen from those streams
in Oakland/Macomb that flow to Harley Ensign Marina
creating the Clinton River Delta in Lake St.Clair.
