Hydrant Flushing

City Utility Department staff are continuing to flush hydrants throughout the City. The schedule for the upcoming week is as follows:

Dexter Crossing, Huron Farms, and Original Village Neighborhoods

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.
