South Haven Dealing With Sewer Overflows

South Haven is dealing with sewer overflows. The Golf Course Lift Station had to discharge raw wastewater intermittently starting at 8 a.m. Friday and ending at 12:30 a.m. Sunday due to the rain. About 10,000 gallons went into the Black River. Starting Saturday at 9 p.m. and ending approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday, the South Haven Area Water Sewer Authority Wastewater Treatment Plant discharged partially treated wastewater to the Black River in the amount of roughly 100,000 gallons. The sewer system overflows are directly related to the inflow and infiltration of surface water into the collection system.
