STERLING HEIGHTS, MI – A southeast Michigan river is part of a study aimed at improving water quality and wastewater treatment in the region, The Associated Press reports.

The Clinton River, which runs through parts of Macomb County, is one of three rivers included in the study, The AP reports. It is part of the Great Lakes Water Authority’s Regional River Water Quality Monitoring Program.

New sensors will be installed in the river in Sterling Heights and Clinton Township, north and northeast of Detroit, the report said. Water flow and height are already monitored at both sites; the new sensors will enhance capabilities. Flow gages are used to assess flood conditions and water quality.
