Not MI Species: Big, hungry fish: What’s being done to prevent invasive bighead, silver and black carp from entering the Great Lakes

Currently, there is no evidence of any live bighead, silver, or black carp, commonly called Asian carp, in the Great Lakes. Michigan continues to play an active role in regional collaboration to protect the Great Lakes from this potential invasion. DNR Senior Water Policy Advisor Tammy Newcomb will explain the threat posed by these invasive fish, current monitoring and surveillance programs, and Michigan’s partnership with Illinois and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide a long-term solution to protect the Great Lakes.

Sand, Stars, Wind, and Water: Field Notes from Up North

Traverse Area District Library invites you to join them as author of Sand, Stars, Wind, and Water: Field Notes from Up North, Tim Mulherin shares his love of the area and its people, and serves as an encouragement to visitors to respect this national treasure–Grand Traverse County, Leelanau County and other up north points. His book is a meditation on an enduring decades-long friendship that developed through countless outdoor diversions: hiking and cross-country skiing on woodland trails, dune climbing, trout fishing, sailing across Lake Michigan to camp on South Manitou and Garden islands, kayaking crystalline waters of local lakes and rivers, driving scenic M-22, and savoring downtime on Lake Michigan beaches. It’s also a commentary on invasive species – both aquatic and human. This is a vivid, entertaining chronicle you can’t help but get caught up in Tim’s enthusiasm. Even if you are a northern Michigan lifer, this book will inspire you.

Village of Deckerville Hydrant Flushing June 21-25

Customer Tips:

  • Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher. Wait until the water runs clear at the tap before doing laundry or running the dishwasher. NOTE: If your laundry becomes stained, DO NOT PUT YOUR LAUNDRY IN THE DRYER. Rewash clothes immediately using detergent and add a rust remover. Most rust removers can also be used on stained fixtures.
  • If discolored water occurs, simply run the cold water for a few minutes until it clears. This will allow the sediment to work through your pipes.
  • In some cases, the discoloration may linger for a few hours. This discoloration of the water only affects the appearance and does not affect the water quality. No health hazards are associated with discolored water from hydrant flushing.
  • If water pressure remains low after the flushing has been completed, check your facet screens or any water filters for trapped particles.
