2023

Pine Street, Chester Road, O’Toole Street, and 4th and 5th Streets looping back along Mayberry Street and Farnsworth Street.

Grant that has been received from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE).  Testing of private water wells in AuSable Charter Township (AuSable) located in Iosco County shows that groundwater in the area has been impacted by Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination.  This testing shows that your particular area has been impacted and will be included in the project to extend the Water main to your residence.

This Grant will extend the AuSable water distribution system along Pine Street, Chester Road, O’Toole Street, and 4th and 5th Streets looping back along Mayberry Street and Farnsworth Street.  This effort involves the installation of approximately 4,400 linear feet of new watermain.  After the watermain extension is completed, approximately 25 homes along the new watermain path will be connected to the municipal water system.  Current water wells will be abandoned as part of this project.This 1.4 million dollar project will include the hook up of the municipal water service to your home. This is of no cost to the homeowner.

October 27, 2022

A revised bike path drawing is now available for review at the AuSable Township Clerk’s office after

1:30 P.M. – 5:00 P.M. (Monday – Friday)   


Due to the construction of the new sewer line along US-23, a portion of the bike path needed to be re-surveyed and engineered.  Engineers update May 5, 2022:

  1. Topo survey will be wrapped up next week.  Our crews have been depleted a bit in the last few weeks due to staff being sick.
  2. The wetlands will be flagged on or before May 20; required for the EGLE permit.
  3. Continuing to work on the EGLE permit.
  4. Design will begin within a few days of the topo being done.
  5. I’d like to set up our first review meeting, virtually or in person, towards the end of June.  We can determine the actual date in the coming weeks.

The total cost to build this section of the trail is estimated at $3,115,142.00.  Funding, at this time, totals $2,789.335.00, leaving the Township responsible for approximately $326,000.00.  We will be out pounding the pavement for donations this summer and  would appreciate any contribution offered. Donations: www.ioscoexplorationtrail.org/donate.html  (please specify in written comments you would like your
donation to go to AuSable's portion (Phase 4) of the bike trail.

Thank you,
