Quality Lake Testing for the White Pigeon Township Lakes:
The White Pigeon Township has purchased an oxygen-temperature tester. If you are interested in testing your lake please note the following:
- Training is required, for details call Victor Raul (989-631-1733) or Mike Zander (269-483-8105).
- A boat or pontoon with a fish finder (depth determinations) is also required for oxygen testing.
- For information on Quality Lake Testing, training and other lake issues, refer to the website, MiCorps.net. MiCorps membership is free. Members receive periodic “Newsletter” which highlights many issues that Michigan lakes and streams are currently facing.
For those interested in using the oxygen-temperature tester call Victor Raul or Mike Zander.
Due to the number of storage sheds cropping up on properties in the Township, we will begin enforcing a Township Ordinance concerning all storage buildings. You must get zoning approval before setting a pre-built or building a storage shed on your property. If the storage shed is more than 200 square feet you must get zoning approval and a building permit. All buildings must meet setbacks and Michigan Building Codes. If you have questions feel free to contact the Township office during regular business hours.
