10 Benzie County Residents Suing Area Fruit Processor And Septic Hauler

Posted: Updated:

10 people in Benzie County are suing a Northern Michigan Fruit Processor and Septic Hauler for dumping waste blueberry juice into a gravel pit, damaging a stream and contaminating groundwater.

The waste came from Graceland Fruit in Frankfort.

Property owners say the waste liquid polluted wells and the creek that ten years later, still omits a foul odor and orange slime.

Graceland says it is responding to the complaints and has bought bottled water for some in the County.
