How clean is the water in the Grand River?

The quality of the water in the Grand River is the best it has ever been since the City of Grand Rapids started tracking the water quality in the early 1970s. Over the past three decades, The City of Grand Rapids has successfully separated its sanitary and storm water sewers.  There has not been an in-system (untreated) sewer overflow into the Grand River since June 2012 and Grand Rapids has eliminated all 59 in-system sanitary sewer overflow points.  The quality of water flowing through Grand Rapids is also influenced by upstream sources and Grand Rapids is leading by example when it comes to protecting the water quality of the Grand River.
