Complete Metals Test-Ford River Twp. Water

Ford River Twp. received notice that we did not meet the monitoring requirements for the water system.

The MDEQ lab in Lansing failed to runt he complete metals test on the sample which was submitted by Ford River Water within the specified time period.  Ford River submitted the appropriate complete metals sample on 9/24/18 and a resample on 12/7/18.  The resample complete metals test results were all within normal range.  All tests on Ford River water in 2018 showed the water source to be completely safe.

The letter from MDEQ is on water page under Complete Metals Test.  Any questions, contact Mark Rose the water operator in charge at 906-630-1864

Water System Winter Considerations

With winter in full swing Ford River Township Water system customers are reminded to use extra caution during the winter months. The water system has hydrants, valve boxes, curb stops, meter pits and meter radio antennas all of which can likely fall in areas where homeowners may be plowing or riding recreational vehicles. Home owners are responsible for damage of all water supply equipment which is located next to their property, and therefore are asked to use care. For example; if winter snow covers a curbstop and a homeowner plows his driveway and bends over that curbstop, you will pay for repair or replacement of any Water Dept. items. Also check around your home to insure there are no water supply lines exposed to freezing conditions. Any questions about the Ford River water system should be directed to Mark Rose 1-906-630-1864.
