6/28/17:  Fireworks Notice

Notice of Runyan Lakeís 4th of July Fireworks Display

This yearís fireworks are scheduled for Saturday, July 1st at dark (approximately 10 pm). 

Volunteers still needed to help with setup and takedown.  Please contact us via email if you are willing to help.

Notice of Island and Ramp Closure for Fireworks on Saturday, 7/1/16

Please be aware both the island and boat ramp will be closed on Saturday July 1, 2017, to prepare for our fireworks display. 

If you need access to the boat ramp on Saturday it will need to occur prior to 8:30 AM.  An appointment with a trustee is required.  The ramp will not reopen until Sunday morning.

The island will be taped off and closed after approximately 10:00 AM Saturday.  Please do not approach the island or allow your dogs to gain access to the island.  Do not enter the area closed off with caution tape.  This is very dangerous for the setup crew as they are working with explosives! 

Please also stay as far away as possible from the dock side of the island while boating.  Boat wakes have splashed fireworks on that side of the island and ruined them.  Boat wakes also make unloading the fireworks equipment dangerous!  Please watch for, and stay away from the fireworks set up crew as they transfer equipment to the island.

The island will reopen on Sunday after a clean-up crew has cleared the island and determined it is safe.  The fishing contest presentations are Sunday at 11:00 AM on the island.

Finally, as darkness settles in, please stay at least 300 feet from the island.  Any boats or people within 300 feet of the island will prevent the show from beginning or stop the show while it is progress.  We will have several aquatic shells this year so keeping a safe distance from the island is even more important.

We could still use a few more volunteers to help with take down after the show.  Please contact me if you are willing to help.

Your support and cooperation is greatly appreciated to ensure our shows remain safe and accident free! 

As always, we hope everyone enjoys the show!

Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy 4th of July!

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.
