Authorities Find Grand River Oil Spill Origin

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MI (WLNS) - Officials say they now believe they know where the oil spill that closed a section of the Grand River in Jackson started and they’re calling it an accident.

Officials say the almost 800 gallons of oil they cleaned from Jackson’s storm sewer system and a portion of the Grand River came from maintenance work being done outside the industrial steel treating company facility.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency looked into the spill and say company officials are cooperating in the cleanup.

The section of the river near Lions Park that was being cleaned up opened back up last week.
