May 10, 2017 - At approximately 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 7, 2017, a sanitary sewer overflow occurred near the intersection of Miller Avenue and Pinetree Street. The overflow of an estimated 100 gallons was the result of a blockage in an 8" sanitary sewer pipe. This overflow entered into a storm drain, flowing through the Allen Drain/Creek, ultimately discharging into the Huron River, just downstream of Argo Pond. Upon notification, Public Works staff immediately removed the blockage and remedied the situation.
In accordance with regulatory protocols, City of Ann Arbor staff contacted the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to inform them of this unfortunate incident.
