LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Lansing official says that an oil-like sheen on the Grand River probably comes from sediment and not from illegal dumping in recent days.

City operations director Chad Gamble told the Lansing State Journal (https://on.lsj.com/1y7kAww ) on Wednesday that an investigation traces the shiny covering of the water to the river bottom.

He says officials investigated after getting 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.
