2012 Overflow review Red Run

December 16, 2012

It’s been relatively DRY the last 12 months of 2012.
Levels on the Red Run have been very very low.

Kuhn Overflows in 2012

Reporting of releases is not automated or well coordinated
between Oakland and Macomb County so it may take 24 – 48 hours
before you’ll see internet activity, especially on weekends,
and holidays. Stick with USGS gauges info for the Clinton River.

Alternate names for the Red Run drainage system while on internet:
a.) George W. Kuhn Retention Basin
b.) SOCSDS = South-eastern Oakland County Sewage Disposal System
c.) Twelve Towns Retention Treatment Facility aka (RTF)

If you wonder if a release occurred you can check Facebook

The intensity and duration of the rainfall is what may trigger
a discharge to occur into the Red Run, not necessarily
just an “X” amount of precipitation.
