The ongoing sludge system improvement project at the Wastewater Treatment Plant has required the removal of the lids on the digesters at the plant. Unfortunately this has the side effect of increased odor. Every effort is being made to control the odor, however there will be times over the next two months that it is strong. We appreciate your patience as we complete this major renovation to the plant.

Starting May 30, 2013 Village utility department staff will be flushing hydrants throughout the Village. The schedule is as follows:

May 30 - June 3 - Cedars of Dexter, Huron Farms, Westridge, Dexter Schools, Industrial Park

June 4 - June 7 - Dexter Crossing, Walkabout Creek, 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.

The Village would like to remind residents and property owners that the Village Public Nuisance Ordinance requires that lawns be maintained to a height of 8 inches or less. Weeds and long grass provide a breeding place for mosquitoes and contribute to unsightly property.  Please also note that per the Village’s Nuisance Ordinance the accumulation of junk or rubbish, including unlicensed or inoperable motor vehicles, household and other equipment in disrepair and inoperable boats and trailers (except in a completely enclosed building), are considered public nuisances.  If you should ever have any complaints, concerns or questions regarding Village ordinances or requirements please contact the Village Office at 734-426-8303.
