Environmental Survey for Sanford Lake

The SLA Board received the following information and would like our members to be aware of it.

Environmental Survey for Sanford Lake

The Midland County Department of Public Health will be conducting an environmental waste survey of Sanford Lake during the current drawdown. Representatives of the Environmental Health Division will be walking the shoreline of certain areas of the lake looking for elicit septic system discharges and poorly functioning septic systems.

Septic waste from homes and businesses can cause bacterial and viral contamination when improperly discharged to surface waters or land areas. This condition is a threat to public health and safety. Septic waste can also contribute to algae growth.

The Survey is expected to begin on or near October 26, 2016, and all representatives will be carrying proper Health Department identification.

To learn more about septic systems or this survey, please go to our website at: https://www.co.midland.mi.us/HealthDepartment/EnvironmentalHealthServices/Sewage.aspx . Or contact us by phone at: 989.832.6679.
