Regular flushing serves two purposes: first, to clean mineral accumulations deposited in the water lines, and second, to test the function and the performance of the fire hydrants.
The safety of the water we supply is not diminished by this process. If you should encounter cloudy or discolored water, it is recommended to run the outside water faucet or the cold-water taps within your home or business until clear.
If you are driving in the work zone where hydrants are being flushed, please drive carefully. Thank you for your cooperation with this seasonal maintenance in the Village of Fowlerville.
