PFAS - Robinson Elementary School

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.

Grand Haven Township Fire/Rescue and Robinson Township Fire Departments are encouraging all residents to properly display their address.

To assist the residents, the township has begun processing orders for HIGHLY REFLECTIVE GREEN address signs that can be displayed near the street. The signs may be displayed on a pre-existing mail box or on a post near the end of your driveway, visible from the street. If your mailbox does not sit on the same property as your house (i.e. across the street) or is clustered together with several other mailboxes, it is suggested that your new sign be installed on a post near the end of your driveway, visible from the street.

    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.
