5.2.16: Michigan’s Adventure seeks to link to public sewage system
MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) — A western Michigan amusement park that last month received a permit allowing it to increase how much sewage it treats and releases into groundwater is now seeking to hook into a public system.
The Muskegon Chronicle reports Michigan’s Adventure said in a news release Friday that it is working with Muskegon County, Fruitland Township and Dalton Township to finalize an agreement to connect to the Muskegon County wastewater system.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality issued a permit on April 6 allowing Michigan’s Adventure to increase the amount of sewage it treats and releases into the groundwater by up to 10 times the current limit. A vocal group had opposed the permit because of concerns the wastewater discharge could harm the Duck Creek-Duck Lake watershed.
