This breaks my heart as we near the end of winter. The Flint River used to be a great place to enjoy summer time sports, i.e fishing, lazy tubing, canoeing, and simply wading near deep by the shore. No though, I would never take the chance of being exposed to all the toxins dumped in that lovely river.
