Push for more ecoli testing
I hope to see a renewed effort along the Red Run, catching those leaking old SEPTIC systems , nonpoint illegal hookups, and more focus on just plain “rain in the drain”.
Ordinary everyday residents need to speak up, call, report anything that looks suspicious leaking, flowing, oozing from any facility, be it a church, a business, a home, someone’s backyard, some drain pipe, – whatever – notify the authorities to make it right.
Hopefully the new tools, media attention, and new Public Works administration in Macomb will crack down on neighbors who continue to have combined sewer overflows fouling the Clinton River and Lake St Clair. It is 2017, a continual evolution for forward progress needs to occur. The 12TownsDrain aka GWK Basin was originally built in 1972.
