More Weather info at Runyan Lake




Runyan Lake ice conditions*:  ** DANGEROUS **  Ice which formed on the main body of the lake has thinned due to recent above freezing temperatures and rain.  Ice is expected to rebuild during the predicted cold weather beginning the evening of 2/9.  It will take several days to create ice thick enough to support people.  Do not venture out onto the ice without frequently checking ice thickness, as Runyan Lake has unpredictable and variable ice thickness on the main body of the lake.  NEVER GO OUT ON THE ICE ALONE!  Currently, the ice is too thin to be safe for human or pet use. (2/9/16)  

*There may be ice in the cove and channel areas of better quality.  As always, use caution!  Tell someone before going out onto the ice and when you expect to be back, and never attempt a rescue of pets or persons without the help of others.  Ice on Runyan Lake varies in quality around the lake, is unpredictable, and is often of poor quality.  In temperatures above 28 degrees the ice will rapidly melt from underneath, resulting in weakened ice conditions.  Have fun, but be safe!

Purple Loosestrife Alert

If you see and can access the invasive plant Purple Loosestrife (spikes of purple flowers), please cut off the blooms and bag them carefully in a plastic garbage bag. Tie up the bag and place it in your trash. One plant has millions of seeds that will fall if not removed. This is an undesirable invasive plant that will choke out native plants.  More information and pictures can be found here.


Aquatic Weed Control

Our second treatment occurred on July 21st.  Please see the weed control page for the current treatment map, current treatment notice, annual treatment notice, treatment dates, and more details. 


 Water Quality Testing Results

Our Summer water samples are in -  despite the geese the E. coli counts are well within safe limits.

Goose Control

 Due to positive testing for Avian influenza in four free-ranging Canada goslings and one sub-adult goose all from Macomb County all confirmed to have been infected with the HPAI H5N2 virus, the DNR geese relocation program has been cancelled for 2015.

Sewer Rate Increase!

On 12/1/15 the Tyrone Township Board approved increases to our quarterly sewer O&M fees for 2016 - 2021 of approximately 3.5% annually.  RLI remains concerned about the large cost incurred by RLI Members while most of the Tyrone Township sewer system remains unused. We will continue to work with the Drain Commission and Township in an effort to control costs and require others to pay their fair share. Please contact Keith Kremer, Clerk, and Marna Bunting-Smith, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or complaints. 


2003 quarterly rate: $60.00 (Runyan Lake Community Septic system)

2004 quarterly rate: $75.00 (new sewer system)


        2007 quarterly rate:  $117.01

Jan. 2010 quarterly rate:  $136.50

 Oct. 2010 quarterly rate: $160.75

Jan. 2011 quarterly rate:  $165.75

April 2012 quarterly rate:  $170.50

Rate details can be found on the Sewer page.


We now pay $852/yr for sewer service, an increase of $612/yr (255%) since 2003!  This does not include the special assessment levied for the 2003 system upgrade, an additional $300/yr for most, or the additional $650 assessment for the grinder pump!


Are we really paying our fair share or are we subsidizing the rest of the undeveloped system?  Ask your township officials!
