ANN ARBOR, Mich. - City officials announced that about 3,000 gallons of untreated sewage have made it into the Huron River.

Officials said the sewage got into the river after a sewer pipe broke Friday in downtown Ann Arbor. The pipe was fixed shortly after, but not before the sewage reached a storm pipe that flows into the Huron River.

The city is taking water samples, but for the time being, canoeing and kayaking is off limits on the Huron River.
