Lincoln Township Description

Lincoln Township is located in the middle of Clare County in the region known as Central Michigan. Lincoln Township, as well as the rest of Clare County, is predominantly rural, known for its heavy forest, many lakes, and recreational opportunities. Because of these many assets, the region attracts thousands of tourist and seasonal residents throughout the year but particularly during the summer months for vacations.

Transportation access to Lincoln Township including U.S.127, U.S.10, M-61 and M-115, which are all located just outside the Township. The nearest major cities from Lincoln Township include Cadillac, Mt. Pleasant, and the Tri-Cities of Bay City, Midland and Saginaw, all within convenient driving distance.

The unincorporated community of Lake George, located on the shores of Lake George and Shingle Lake, is located in the Township and serves as the focal point for commerce and services, as well as being the Township seat.

Natural Gas Storage Wells "Odorize"


In an effort to comply with State of Michigan concerns about Natural Gas safety protocols, Trans Canada will immediately begin installing "odorizer" equipment on natural gas storage wells in Lincoln and Freeman Township(s). Natural Gas is odorless, colorless, tasteless, and has no odor, except when intentionally odorized. For the purposes of safety, and in order to provide a "warning" of a possible leak, to persons in an area where Natural Gas Wells exist, a wick-based odorizer system will be installed that emits a harmless, non-toxic odor containing Sulphur, with a smell similar to rotten eggs. This odor will travel with the gas, and is intended to alert persons, nearby, of any gas leaks. If a gas leak is suspected, a person should call 911, with a location, and Clare County Central Dispatch will then notify Trans Canada. The Lincoln Township Fire Department as well as Clare County Emergency Management are also being notified of this project, which may take a few months to complete. There is NO emergency in this installation, rather it is a routine upgrade of safety protocols.
