Fire Hydrant Flushing Information

 

Fire Hydrant Flushing in Summit Township and Spring Arbor Township
is done biannually in April and September.  
 
Fall 2018  Hydrant flushing will begin September 17, 2018.  

Hydrant flushing will take place between 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday - Friday and is expected to take four weeks to complete.

Flushing is necessary to wash iron and other sediment out of the water mains.  The sediment does not affect water quality, but can cause water to become discolored.

The water is safe to drink and discoloration often disappears within a short time.

Residents are advised to not wash clothing while lines are being flushed in their area and for motorists to slowdown and use caution if driving past a hydrant being flushed.
