‘No body contact’ order issued for parts of the Kalamazoo River

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — City officials issued a warning to stay out of the Kalamazoo River for the time being after a sewer line overflowed.

Officials say 2,370 gallons of “discharge” from a sanitary sewer leaked into a storm drain at the corner of Cameron Street and Washington Avenue. The leak has been stopped, but the repairs and clean-up continue.

Kalamazoo’s water treatment facility has notified the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the county’s health department.

The no body contact advisory covers the area between the Kings Highway and Mills Street bridges.
