Manistee River Polluted With Wastewater

Posted: Updated:

State officials from three organizations discovered wastewater flowing into the Manistee River.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, the DNR and the U.S. Coast Guard gathered environmental data from the river earlier this month.

When they found the problem, they contacted the Manistee Public Works.

Workers there found the problem and stopped the flow.

Vanessa Fayz and Jeremy Erickson talked to the DEQ about what happens next.
