Vacationing the Earth-Friendly Way

Independence Townwship has dedicated itself to protecting and enhancing the Clinton River. We want to make sure our residents are kept well-informed of any potential actions that may harm the waterways of the State. Many of you may be planning to take vacations this summer, and will be traveling in recreational vehicles (RVs). There are many things to think about when taking care of your RV, but here’s one more that we’d like you to ponder.

We know you wouldn't drive to the beach and empty your RV's waste tank into the ocean. (We hope not!) But did you know it is illegal to dump sewage into a storm drain? The sewage will end up in the lakes and rivers or contaminate our groundwater and the water we drink.

We want RV owners to enjoy the environment while they are vacationing, and leave it in good shape for their next visit. So for your convenience, we've provided locations for legal, approved sewage disposal facilities. Please call the facility you are interested in to verify the hours of operation and the disposal fees.

Protect the environment while you enjoy it! Make sure you dispose of waste properly and take it to a disposal facility.
