Michigan's Impaired Grand River Key to Region

"Recent flooding of the 263-mile-long Grand River led to runoff issues, sewage overflows, and an increased awareness of the river’s significance to the region."

"Once a main link for industry and communities, the Grand River is now a recreational destination for tourists and a backyard ecological paradise for countless homes and businesses dotting its riverbanks.

Although much work has been done through the years to clean up the river that runs through our city, the Grand still has a long way to go before it reclaims its former pristine status."
