Aldrich Lake Dredging Project

Aldrich Lake Dredging Project Information Guide


Early today the Township Council cut the ribbon on Aldrich Lake dock signifying the completion of the long-anticipated dredging project.  Over 50,000 cubic yards of material was removed from the lake and a 100’ long fixed dock was added to improve recreation opportunities.  Additional improvements will be made over the next few months as the Council continues to concentrate on improving recreation in Howell.  The total construction cost of the project was roughly $2,000,000 and was completed by Precise Construction, Inc. from Howell.  The consultant engineer was Charlie Cunliffe, P.E. of T&M Associates and we must thank the Lake Restoration & Wildlife Committee for pushing this project to get completed.

SDL Online Portal and SDL Citizen App

Please follow this LINK to Howell Township's online permit and construction information portal. A one time registration is required to log in to the online portal.

The Howell Township SDL Portal provides residents with direct access to real time information regarding their property.  This real-time information is accessed directly from the Township’s Graphic Information System, GIS, which many departments use every day in managing activities within the Township.   

The property page includes everything from basic tax lot and owner information to detailed data regarding current and Historical Permits, inspections and Property Data.

Residents can easily and quickly locate basic property information for single locations, or display town-wide data available from the Township’s GIS data inventory, with basic and custom map layers and overlays. 

The Portal also includes and APP for Android and Apple devices called the "SDL Citizen" App. This App can be downloaded through Google's and Apple's official store App. Howell Township does not currently accept Online Permit applications. We do not accept complaints through the App, all complaints should be referred to Howell Township through the CivicPlus Request Tracker listed at this LINK.
