Bad Axe, Huron County, Michigan – The Huron Daily Tribune reported in May of 2012  that during the Huron County Board of Commissioners meeting a report was highlighted by Dr. David Swenson from Michigan State University. Joan Rose, a MSU microbiologist has determined the bacteria in the lake are from both animal and human waste,” said Swenson. “The animal waste is from runoff from area farms and there’s no acceptable reason to have it getting into the lake because there are technologies available to take care of that.”

The news comes just has tourist season begins in the Upper Thumb. This report comes on the heels of earlier stories at ThumbWind about the grey smelly muck that comes in on some beaches in the summer.
