Swim it and/or fish it... no $5k DEQ test and seasonal assumptions needed. If the fertilizer run-off from my farm affected even one neighbor, my a** would be in a sling. Farm run-offs are and have been affecting everyone who contacts the Grand River for decades... but I guess this is deemed acceptable.


In fact, on a slow flow day... I bet I can find at least 5-6 septic systems being dumped (low pipes) into the Grand between Grand Haven & Eastmanville. Complaints fall on deaf ears... just like the County Road Commission and their responsibilities. If I were wealthy, my noise would be louder... but it is what it is in this county.
