This site is for the community of Runyan Lake, the Members of Runyan Lake Inc., and for the interest of their family and friends, along with those who desire information on residing and owning property in the Runyan Lake community.

Runyan Lake ice conditions*:  ** Dangerous **  A thin layer of ice is forming overnight and partially or fully melting during the day.  This will likely continue through the weekend.  This thin layer of ice is too thin to safely use. (3/12/18)

*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!  (RLI does not test ice conditions around the lake.  This safety assessment is determined by observation and condition reports received by RLI.  As always, you are responsible for your own safety.  Ice conditions can change quickly as temperatures rise and during windy conditions.)

Boat Ramp Access
There are no set hours for the boat ramp.  For an appointment, riparian Members please call a trustee with at least 24 hours advance notice.

Appointments cannot be made online. Your 2018 dues must be paid, your watercraft legally registered, and your boat sticker on your watercraft to use the ramp.  Click HERE for more information.


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.


Fishing Contest

The 2017 fishing contest was June 23 - June 30.  See the fishing page for more details and past contest winners.


Fish Study Support
Thanks to those who helped out!


Aquatic Weed Control

Next update will be May 2018.   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

Water samples were collected on 6/19/17 and 8/16/17.  All samples tested within the acceptable/normal range.


Goose Control

 We have sufficient petition signatures to submit an application this year to protect our island and the health and safety of our Members.  If you have not returned your petition form please do so to ensure we can continue to participate in the USDA goose control program.



 Please keep your distance and don't harass the swans!  More information can be found HERE.



We have a new invasive plant species in Runyan Lake, Starry Stonewort.  More information HERE.

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 Marcella Husted, Clerk, and Jennifer Eden, 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 (Livingston Regional Sewer System)


          2007 quarterly rate:  $117.01

 Jan. 2010 quarterly rate:  $136.50

 Oct. 2010 quarterly rate:  $160.75

Rate details can be found on the Sewer page.


We now pay $877/yr for sewer service, an increase of $637/yr (265%) 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!
