In The Spotlight

Red Cedar River Clearing

The clearing of logjams in the Red Cedar River is currently underway!  Logjams will be cleared from the river adjacent to the Brookshire Golf Course through to Meridian Rd.  This will provide a wonderful opportunity for residents to enjoy recreational opportunities of one of the hidden gems of the Township as well as have an impact on the ability of the drains within the Township to function properly with the rain events we have been experiencing.  Some of the logjams have been in the river for almost 20 years.  Thanks to all the Township volunteers that have stepped up to help with the smaller logjams to create a safe recreational opportunity for our residents.
