E-M:/ first of season?? Grand River Surface water advisory

Good Morning Michigan

I’m wondering - was this the first Sewage Dump of the season??  This was a result of Sunday’s rain.  What about the rain from last night’s storms?  We read online that we got 5/8 inch yesterday and last night. 



Surface water advisory issued for Grand River

Sunday afternoon's rain storm in Grand Rapids pushed the sewage treatment facility there over its capacity, sending a combined sewer overflow release of about 2.5 million gallons into the Grand River.

The overflow prompted the Ottawa County Health Department on Monday to issue a surface water advisory for the entire length of the river through the county. The three-day no body contact advisory is set to expire at 11 a.m. Thursday.
