The Ottawa County Department of Heath has issued a 'No Body Contact Advisory' for a portion of Spring Lake and the Grand River according to WoodTV.com.

According to the Ottawa County Department of Public Health, the Grand Haven/Spring Lake Sewer Authority estimates the spill started Sunday, at a rate of 500,000 gallons of sanitary sewage each day.

The no contact order starts about 1 mile east of the US-31 bridge and includes downstream to the Grand River inlet to Lake Michigan. People who visit this section of the river are urged to avoid contact with it until the sewer system is fixed and tested.

This isn't the first sewage spill in West Michigan in recent months.  Last August we had half a million gallons of sewage overflow into the Kalamazoo River.  Read that story by clicking the button below.
