Curb Marker Program

In an effort to make residents aware of how local actions affect local water quality, the Township has begun a curb marker installation program in local subdivisions. These colorful curb markers stating "No Dumping, Drains to Waterways" are affixed on storm water catch basins to remind people that what goes into these catch basins end up draining into the Looking Glass River and the Grand River. Examples of pollutants that hurt water quality in our area include:

  • Animal waste
  • Excess lawn fertilizer
  • Grass clippings
  • Motor oil
  • Paint
  • Soaps and chemicals from washing cars

Volunteer groups are working with the Township to install the markers. If your neighborhood or volunteer group is interested in helping install markers, please contact the Manager's Office by email, or call 517-668-0270.
