PFAS

On October 29, Robinson Township was informed that the Ottawa County Department of Public Health and Grand Haven Public Schools were notified of elevated levels of PFAS at Grand Haven’s Robinson Elementary School. School leaders immediately restricted access to drinking water in the building; bottled water is being provided to the school. Other than Robinson Elementary, all other schools in the Grand Haven Public School District are served by Northwest Ottawa Water System. This system has been tested and the results were as below health advisory levels.

The Ottawa County Department of Public Health (OCDPH) is working with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Grand Haven Area Public Schools (GHAPS) and Robinson Township to take appropriate measures and develop an action plan to help ensure the water residents are drinking meets appropriate state and federal standards.

Changes for Area Code Dialing

Michigan Township Insights

10-digit dialing to be required for all calls in 616, 810, 906 and 989 area codes

Michiganders in the 616, 810, 906 and 989 area codes will have to use those area codes when dialing even for local calls starting on Oct. 24 this year, the Michigan Public Service Commission recently announced. However, callers are urged to start dialing all 10 digits beginning April 24 to get used to the new requirement. People who dial only seven digits will still be connected during this “permissive dialing period.” However, on Oct. 24, the change becomes official, and local calls dialed with only seven digits may not be completed. The reason for the change is that 988 has been designated by the federal government as the abbreviated three-digit code to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Any area code that includes the 988 prefix must transition from seven-digit dialing to 10-digit dialing. Customers in other Michigan area codes aren’t affected by these changes at this time.

    Payments made after 5:00 p.m. are processed  the next day which will effect the payment due.  On March 1st Robinson Township cannot accept the previous year’s tax payments.
