*Citizens should avoid ALL contact with Huroc Park and the downstream of the river. Due to the severity of the recent flooding, partially treated wastewater may have been released into the river. From Wayne County:
We strongly advise all residents to take the following precautionary measures:
Avoid All Contact: Refrain from swimming, wading, kayaking, boating, or any form of direct contact with the river water until further notice. This includes avoiding any recreational activities that involve the river.
Keep Pets Away: Ensure that your pets are kept away from the river water as well, as they can also be susceptible to the contaminants present in the water.
Hygiene Practices: If you inadvertently come into contact with the river water, immediately wash the exposed areas of your body with soap and clean water. Avoid touching your face, especially your mouth and eyes, after being in or around the river.
Avoid Consuming Fish: If you engage in fishing, we recommend refraining from consuming any fish caught from the river during this time, as they may be affected by the effluent discharge.

Construction for the replacement of Blue Heron will begin 04/10/2023. Roughly 1,500 linear feet will be replaced - this is an increase over the proposed amount. As the same for the last few years, the concrete contractor, Dominic Gaglio, will be sectioning the street as work progresses. Parking and access to your homes will be accommodated as much as possible. This is projected to be completed by the end of June 2023. Continuing replacement will be acomplished as funding allows. We are currently working on our Asset Management Plan with our engineers. Money from the state comes through Public Act 51 for our roads. Our road millage also provides funding for the streets of all of our residents.
