Hydrant flushing will continue the week of November 18, 2013. The schedule for the final week of flushing is as follows:
Westridge, Dexter Ann Arbor Rd/Downtown, 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 build up of minerals in the water system. Some natural mineral deposits 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 426-4572 during the hours of 7:00am and 3:30pm. Thank you for your cooperation during this effort to maintain the quality of your water system.
