MI SHORELAND
The MI Shoreland Stewards program is a statewide recognition program developed by the Michigan Natural Shoreline Partnership to recognize lake shore property owners who protect their lake through good shoreline practices.

Take your survey today at: www.mishorelandstewards.org To provide incentive to people for using the survey, the LCA is giving away three $50 gift certificates to be awarded by random drawing among every Lake Charlevoix Association member who completes the survey.

levels
Click Here For the Latest Water Levels Chart from US Army Corps of Engineers
Lake water levels are ever changing, and in 2016 they peaked at about 5″ higher than in 2015, but different from most years, this year the levels were within a one inch range from early May through mid August. 

The forecast is for the usual dropping of levels starting in August, which we are seeing.  Some reports showed near-shore water temperatures in the mid 80’s this summer, so it will be interesting to witness what the very warm water means for evaporation in the next several months and for lake levels next summer.

This link will take you to a very generalized listing of township ordinances pertaining to shoreline regulations.
