Plume of Grand River Flows into Lake Michigan

Although the beach has been cleaned, debris continues to wash up on shore after two weeks.

Floods upstream on the Grand River in Michigan have sent debris on the sandy beaches along Lake Michigan.  I walked the beach yesterday and there were pods of water lilies, cat tails and all sorts of debris the river swept downstream.  Today bulldozers are scooping it all up and taking it away.  There is a no contact advisory for the Grand River.  It’s easy to see why.
