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 2017 dues must be paid, your watercraft legally registered, and your boat sticker on your watercaft 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 2016 fishing contest was June 24 - July 1.  See the fishing page for more details and past contest winners.


Aquatic Weed Control

Weed treatment will be applied in early June when needed.  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 will be collected in the spring.  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.

Community Notices

4/9/17: High Water Advisory
Due to recent rains Runyan Lake is currently approximately 10 inches above its average level.  As a result many items on shores are now touching water and may float away.  Significant winds will continue today and tomorrow, so wave action will further affect items on shores.  Please check and secure items on or near the water so you do not lose them!

3/8/17: Sewer leak reported at 10128 Walnut Shores by LCDC.  Press release for a sanitary sewer overflow March 7, 2017:


A sewer leak occurred Tuesday March 7 from a failure in the curb stop valve assembly where the lateral sewer pipe connects to the force main at a home on Runyan Lake in Tyrone Township. The leak was reported to Livingston County Drain Office operators at 6:23 pm and was contained at 8:15 pm when a sewer vacuum truck arrived.


The estimated amount of discharge was approximately 1000 gallons of raw sewage that flowed across two yards and into a catch basin to the lake. The raw sewage and ground water were vacuumed up throughout the entire flow path. Residents were informed of exposure precautions.


(note:  This is the second break and flow into Runyan Lake this winter.  On January 28th approximately 1800 gallons leaked from 10369 Lakeshore Drive.)

While not sanctioned or monitored by RLI, there is a Runyan Lake Inc. Facebook account many people around the lake are using to communicate.  Please keep in mind RLI does not own or monitor this account.  All inquiries to RLI must be made via Contact Us to reach us.


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 Marna Bunting-Smith, Treasurer, @ 810-629-8631 with your questions, concerns, or complaints.

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!
