KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A no contact advisory for a stretch of the Kalamazoo River after a sewage overflow has been canceled.

About 2,370 gallons overflowed from the sanitary sewage system into the storm sewer in the area of Cameron Street and Washington Avenue Tuesday, the city of Kalamazoo said.

As a result, a no body contact advisory was issued the river between the Kings Highway and the Mills Street bridges. That’s in the area of Mayors’ Riverfront Park and Homer Stryker Field.
