[ARCHIVED] Notice to Public Regarding Oil Slick on Pine River

February 25, 2020  The City of Midland wishes to notify the public regarding a reported oil slick discovered on the Pine River.

Earlier this afternoon, the City of Midland was notified of a possible petroleum sheen approximately 4 – 5 miles in length that was located upstream of Midland on the Pine River. Following an onsite investigation, officials with the Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE) have determined that the sheen is caused by motor oil leaking from heavy equipment at a residence in Saint Louis, Michigan.

The sheen will be visible in the Pine and Tittabawassee Rivers as it passes through Midland. 

Residents may contact the EGLE Pollution Emergency Alerting System (PEAS) Hotline at 800-292-4706 with questions or additional information regarding this incident.
