Hydrant Flushing

Fall hydrant flushing will be done on the following dates

South Side

Monday, October 21st to October 25th

North Side

Monday, October 28th to November 1st

We will be trying or best to perform the flushing during the hours of 9am to 5pm

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.

2018 Water Quality Test Results

This report covers the drinking water quality for the Charlevoix Township Water System for calendar year 2018. This information is a snapshot of the quality of the water that we provided to you in 2018. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) standards.

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.
