Hydrant Flushing

Charlevoix Township Water Department will be performing a “Fall Time Routine Hydrant Flushing” as part of their Hydrant Flushing Program. 

The flushing is scheduled to start-

  • South Side Monday October 12th 2020 to Friday October 16th 2020
  • North Side Monday October 19th 2020 to Friday October 23rd 2020.

Hydrant Flushing will be limited to the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

A large amount of water will be filling ditches and sides of the road. Please be advised this is normal procedure being performed.

During this time, customers may notice episodes of decreased water pressure or discoloration of their water. Water discoloration results from temporary disturbances of the normal water flow within our piping network. These short-term changes in flow can stir up naturally occurring minerals and sediment that settle within the water mains. 

The objective of the water main/hydrant flushing program is to remove these accumulated sediments from our pipes by flushing the water out of the fire hydrants. 

If your water becomes discolored please run your water thru a non-aerator faucet until water is clear. Thank You for your time and patience as we perform these routine services on our system.

We Please ask during this “Corona Virus- COVID-19 Outbreak” Residents DO NOT approach employees, as we are trying to keep both residents and employees healthy.

Any question or concerns can be answered by calling the Charlevoix Township Water Department Emergency Phone at 231-497-8369

Urban Deer Management

  • Archery hunters are able to hunt in urban areas. There is no safety zone associated with archery equipment anymore so this is a viable option for many urban areas. They need the appropriate licenses to hunt during the season and we highly recommend that neighbors are made aware and are supportive of the hunting activities.
  • Wildlife Services is an excellent option for urban areas since they are able to perform the removals efficiently and quietly.
  • Managed Hunts- we have had these in the past, often times local law enforcement takes the lead with these. If it’s out of season we provide the permits and can help with guidance.
  • Education campaigns are a big part of this in order to get approval from home-owners in many areas. It’s also important to educate about ways to deter deer from areas (certain plants are unpalatable for deer, no feeding of wildlife in these areas, etc.).
  • If a hunter shoots a deer and it runs onto someone else’s property they are not allowed to retrieve the deer until they receive permission from the landowner. If the landowner doesn’t give permission the hunter must let the lie.
