Hydrant flushing will begin on Tuesday, June 14th and end Saturday, June 25th. Most flushing will take place between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
Public Services Department personnel will flush the hydrants and mains to remove accumulated sediments and ensure water supply systems are working properly. While flushing doesn’t affect the safety of the water supply, tap water may appear cloudy or discolored after flushing. The City is advising residents to run their cold water in their bathtub or utility sink until it runs clear again, and is discouraging them from using their washing machines the day of flushing and for 24 hours after, since clothing could become discolored.
If you have scheduled construction or maintenance projects during this time, please contact Terry Blaniar at (269)441-9277 so that necessary precautions can be taken to avoid conflicts or problems.
