Runyan Lake Water Quality Management


The waters of Runyan Lake are managed by the efforts of Runyan Lake Inc. and the Livingston County Drain Commission.  


Runyan Lake water quality is a top priority!  As a result, Runyan Lake Inc. and the Drain Commission manage the waters of Runyan Lake by a combination of actions (aquatic plant & weed control, geese control, sewer system, water level control), activities (invasive species monitoring and treatment, Mute Swan monitoring, water quality monitoring), and studies (fish and water quality).


Runyan Lake Inc. is responsible for the following water quality management efforts:

  1. Aquatic Plant & Weed Control 

  2. Fish Studies

  3. Goose Control

  4. Invasive Species Monitoring and Control

  5. Mute Swan Monitoring

  6. Water Quality Monitoring

  7. Water Quality Studies


The Livingston County Drain Commission is responsible for the following water quality management efforts:

  1. Runyan Lake Level Control

  2. Sewer System  


What you can do to help protect Runyan Lake:

  1. Catch and release.  Set it free so it can reproduce and try to catch it another day.

  2. Carefully select your fish bait.  Purchase only from local sources.  Do not dump unused bait into the lake else you risk spreading invasive species or diseases.

  3. Don't burn leaves or grass clippings near the lake.  Ash, smoke, and water runoff will carry the nitrogen and phosphorus into the lake and fertilize algae and weeds.  This also increases the cost of aquatic weed treatments. Also see burn permit requirements.

  4. Keep all campfires at least 30 feet from the lake.  Again, ash, smoke, and water runoff will fertilize the lake. Also see burn permit requirements.

  5. Clean all weeds from trailers and empty bilges before launching boats.  If your boat was used on another lake drain all bilges and do not launch your boat for at least 48 hours.

  6. Do not fertilize lawns within 50 feet of the lake.  This will help reduce the transfer of fertilizer into the lake from water runoff.
