Not to frighten people, just to be realistic about my recent experiences with water quality testing in streams & rivers in our area, but I personally would not swim (or touch) any fresh water in any stream or lake in the entire state of Michigan right now.
If you do choose to expose yourself to the disgusting sewage that's in extremely high concentrations in our water, please shower afterwards.
This Labor Day weekend, many, many people will choose to participate in water activities and I really don't recommend that. Just my semi-expert opinion. What's your opinion? -Julie L. Spencer
