The Saint Joseph River: Clean, but safe?

A recent series of articles in the South Bend Tribune focused on the Saint Joseph River. Two of the articles examined the water quality in the river and the dangers posed by swimming and boating in its waters. The Saint Joseph River is a wonderful resource for our community. It is the third largest tributary into Lake Michigan. The river has gained a reputation as a huge dynamic fishery and is considered one of the finest summer steelhead fisheries in the country. Over 50 species of fish have been identified in the river. The water quality in the Saint Joseph River is very good and continues to improve.
