Officials Investigate Sheen on Grand River

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Lansing officials are trying to determine whether an oil-like sheen on the Grand River was the result of normal runoff or a spill.

Chad Gamble, the city's operations director, tells the Lansing State Journal ( ) that the city and other public agencies received calls Tuesday about a sheen on the river near the Brenke Fish Ladder.

Lansing saw more than an inch of rain Monday and early Tuesday. Gamble says a sheen can develop from oil or gasoline that washes into the river.
