Storms Earlier This Week Spilled Sewage Into Grand River

Grand Rapids storms hadn’t caused a sewage overflow since last July.  That streak ended on Monday.  Monday’s storms led to 58,000 gallons of raw sewage being released into the Grand River.

Mlive.com has more info on the overflow:

Grand Rapids officials reported two combined-sewer overflows: one at Weston Street and Division Avenue and the other at Logan Street and Ionia Avenue SW. About 58,000 gallons of sewage overflowed, estimated Mike Lunn, the city’s environmental services manager.

There are four places where sewage and storm water combines in Grand Rapids where it can allow overflows into the river.  In 1991 there were 59 overflow points.  The remaining four are scheduled to be fixed in the next four years.

Let’s hope heavy rain storms avoid Grand Rapids until 2017.
