St. Joseph River Watershed Settlements Reached

Share this post

A trio of settlements to eliminate overflows of raw sewage into the St. Joseph River was completed today. US Attorney David Capp announced the City of Mishawaka has agreed to make an estimated 132-point-one million dollars worth of improvements to its combined sewer system to eliminate an annual discharge of an estimated 111 million gallons of raw sewage. Capp says the trio of Clean Water Act settlements, which also included the Cities of Elkhart and South Bend, will result in historic and permanent water quality improvements to the St. Joseph River and Lake Michigan. The three settlements for sewer system improvements are expected to reduce annual raw sewage discharges by over one-point-one billion gallons, resulting in the prevention of over 700-thousand pounds of pollutants from entering the St. Joseph River each year.
