ANN ARBOR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Officials are seeking the cause of an apparent tar spill that left a trail of the industrial sealant along a dirt road near Ann Arbor.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1YFMTRj ) a resident noticed the spill Monday on private property in Washtenaw County’s Ann Arbor Township while walking his dog and reported it to the city of Ann Arbor.

City spokeswoman Lisa Wondrash says Ann Arbor reported the spill to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality on Wednesday. Wondrash says that the state will work with the property owner on any remediation and cleanup that’s needed.

The property includes trails that run through fields, linking Olson Park with Leslie Park.
