County: 'Milky substance' in Sterling Heights drain likely concrete washout

Sterling Heights ó An investigation continued on Friday into what is now believed to be concrete washout in the Burr Relief #2 Drain in central Sterling Heights, the public works commissioner said.

Investigators were walking the drain on Friday and visiting businesses in the area, seeking the source of the material. The presence of the material was first reported by a citizen Thursday afternoon. Macomb County Public Works Office and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality personnel are working together on the response.

A sediment curtain was installed Thursday to prevent the material from traveling downstream and entering the Plumbrook Drain, which the Burr Relief #2 empties into.

The drain is east of Mound Road, south of 18 Mile, in an industrial area of Sterling Heights. Ultimately, the drainís water travels via to the Plumbrook to the Red Run to the Clinton River and out to Lake St. Clair.
