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.
