Test results of samples taken earlier this week from other areas found no presence of the chemical.

Tribar, an auto supplier in Wixom, is under a cease and desist order while state and local officials investigate the cause of the spill.

A water advisory is still in effect.

“As additional water test results are received, MDHHS may expand this recommendation to other areas of the Huron River,” Environment, Great Lakes and Energy said in a news release.

Meredith Dickerson, who protested outside Tribar on Friday, said she hopes the company will be held accountable for the spill.

“Unless this company gets a major overhaul, I don’t see how the company can operate responsibly,” he said.
