Great Lakes Water Authority testing township water; boil water alert remains in effect


Posted by Scott Bolthouse | The Huron Hub | Oct. 12, 2021 | 10:40 a.m.

The Great Lakes Water Authority is in the area today testing the water around the township following a massive water main break last weekend.

The water main break has caused a boil water alert in the township, and has also closed local schools through Thursday as a precaution.

Below is the most current statement from Huron Township DPW Director Jim Lancaster.

“Spoke with the Great Lakes Water Authority this morning. They should be in town testing our location as this message is being sent. The process is they will take these samples to the lab and incubate them for 18-24 hours to see if there is any bacteria present in the system. They will come back tomorrow and do the same thing and as long as those samples are clear after that 2nd 24 hour window we will be lifting the boil water alert. I will update as more information comes along.”

Huron Schools closed Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday as township awaits water tests

Posted by Scott Bolthouse | The Huron Hub | Oct. 11, 2021 | 4:20 p.m.

The Huron School District will be closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week while the township awaits water tests following a massive water main break that occurred Sunday.

Donovan Rowe, superintendent of Huron School District, sent a communication Monday afternoon explaining the situation.

Rowe said he hopes the situation will be resolved so that classes can resume on Friday.

“I have been in contact with the Huron Township Department of Public Safety today, and we are working closely with the Huron Township DPW. Officials have notified the schools that they cannot guarantee that water is safe to drink or use for hand washing at this time. We are being told that definitive test results will not be available until late on Thursday, and the boil water advisory will be in effect until the results are in. Student and staff safety is our primary concern, and this situation poses a potential risk to our drinking and washing water in the district. Unfortunately, this means that the Huron School District will be closed on Tuesday, October 12, Wednesday, October 13, and Thursday, October 14, 2021. We hope that we will be able to safely return to regular operation on Friday. As always, we will communicate any updates or changes if and when we are made aware. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be safe out there,” Rowe said.

Posted by The Huron Hub | July 19, 2021

Local residents need not travel all the way to Detroit to check out some world famous artwork.

Instead, the Detroit Institute of Arts is bringing it to Huron Township.

The Huron Parks and Recreation Commission applied to the DIA’s Inside|Out program and was awarded the displays for the 2021 year.

The annual program brings high-quality reproductions from the DIA’s collection to outdoor venues in communities throughout the state of Michigan.

Seven full-size, high quality reproductions have been installed throughout the township, encouraging residents to get out and enjoy these many masterpieces in our own community.

The artwork will be on display until November.

The locations are: Township Hall, Berlinn Park, Historical Building, Riverside Park, vacant lot in town, Lajko Park, and the Senior Park.
