Website Image under Public EdThe links below are from various sources and will help provide information about storm water management and what you can do to help.  Never dump anything down a storm drain, catch basin, river, stream or ditch.  This includes items such as litter, cigarettes, leaves, grass clippings, fertilizer, oil or gas.  Vienna Township works with Genesee County and the State of Michigan to keep our waters safe.  Please remember to stay vigilant and if you see someone putting something into our storm system that doesn't seem right, please call the building department right away at 810-686-7676.
