City of Fenton, Water Main Flushing, May 21 through May 26, 2023
Fenton, MI: The City of Fenton Water Department will perform water main flushing in Quadrant 1 and Quadrant 3, beginning May 21st through May 26th. Water main flushing will be performed from 10:00PM through 4:00AM to minimize low water pressure conditions.
Flushing water mains removes minerals and sediment that naturally accumulate in the water distribution system. Fire hydrants are used for the flushing process, allowing Water Department personnel to operate fire hydrants to ensure proper function for fire protection.
Once flushing is completed in your area, water may appear rust colored because iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains are stirred by high velocity water flow associated with the flushing process. There is no health hazard associated with discolored water and the water customer may need to run the cold water tap at all faucet locations in the home to eliminate discolored water. We recommend waiting a day after any discolored water is flushed from your pipes before doing laundry.
If you are experiencing discolored water after at least five minutes of cold water flushing at all faucets in your home, please contact the City of Fenton Water Department at 810-629-6347 for assistance.
Please refer to the attached map where QUADRANT 1 and QUADRANT 4 will be flushed from May 21 through May 26, 2023 from 10:00PM to 4:00AM.
Additional information on the city’s Water Flushing Program is posted on the city website, www.cityoffenton.org.
