    Default USACE fix Red Run Drain aka Clinton River ?

    Maybe in 2015 they'll actually stabilize the banks and prevent the landslides that have been occurring after they supposedly fixed them, twice before, with tax payer money

    Many in Warren Michigan suffered flooding in 2011 as well
    -Oakland County 12 Towns drains thru Warren via The Red Run.
    It ALL ends up in the Clinton River and flows in Lake St. Clair.
    Hackel doesn't speak much about what happens
    at Dequindre Road, just north of 13 Mile, by the Dog Walk Park.............

    From a report back in 2007
    http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/aoc/clinton...ntonRvrRAP.pdf

    Sediments of the Main Branch of the Clinton River from Pontiac to the confluence with Red Run Drain are moderately contaminated with metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, some semi-volatile organic compounds, and nitrogen. Based on historical data, the contamination is fairly widespread throughout this portion of the river (MDEQ, 1995).
    In comparison, sediments from the Red Run Drain/Plum Brook drainage have historically been moderately to heavily contaminated with metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, semi-volatile organic compounds, and nitrogen. Contaminants of particular concern are mercury and PCBs because they have caused fish consumption advisories (MDEQ, 1995).


    The remainder of the downstream portion of the river and the spillway are the most heavily contaminated reaches within the watershed. Elevated levels of metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, semi-volatile organic compounds, nitrogen, PCBs, and DDT (and its breakdown products dichlorodiphenyl dichloroethylene [DDE] and dichlorodiphenyl dichloroethane [DDD]) are common in the sediments.
    The presence of DDT, DDE and DDD has been found localized in the lower strata of the sediment cores indicating historical usage of these contaminants. PCBs, where present, are commonly found in the surficial sediments as well as in deeper strata (MDEQ, 1995).
