Fall Hydrant Flushing

Continuing the week of October 19, 2020 City Utility Department staff will be flushing hydrants throughout the City. The schedule for week three of the flushing is as follows:

Cedars of Dexter and Westridge (Thursday and Friday)

As crews flush hydrants there may be some discoloration of the water. Residents who experience “rust colored” water should simply run the cold water tap for a few minutes to clear the household pipes.  The rust coloring is caused by a natural buildup of minerals in the water system, which are stirred up in the water pipes when fire hydrants are first turned on.  If possible, try to avoid washing white clothes during this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Utility Department at 734-426-4572 during the hours of 7:00 am and 3:30 pm. Thank you for your cooperation during this effort to maintain the quality of your water system.
