Hydrant Flushing Begins October 4.

Hydrant Flushing Map

*Flushing has been delayed a few days, please check the map for the updated schedule

The City of Saline will begin flushing hydrants as part of a routine maintenance program to achieve the highest water quality to residents. 

Starting October 4, 2021, the Department of Public Works (DPW) will flush various hydrants throughout the City.  Hydrant flushing will continue through early Wednesday, October 20, 2021.

Although it may appear that hydrant flushing is ‘wasting water’, hydrant flushing is an important preventative maintenance step to the City’s water distribution system.

When hydrant flushing occurs within your area, you may notice…

·         Various hydrants open with water running down the street

·         Water discoloration 

­    No need to be alarmed, water discoloration is normal during flushing and is not harmful. 

­    Discoloration is caused by mineral deposits that have settled in the water main being stirred up during flushing. 

­    Running cold water for a few minutes will allow clear water to work its way from the water main into your pipes clearing up any discoloration. 

If discoloration still occurs, wait a few more minutes and try running the cold water again.  It is best to run the lowest cold water tap (basement) closest to where your water line enters your house. 

·         Low water pressure 
−    This may occur if various nearby hydrants are flushed at the same time you access your water. 
−    This may occur if built-up sediment from the flushing is trapped in the faucet screen. 

Hydrant flushing will take place overnight to minimize these problems.

For more information regarding hydrant flushing, please contact the Department of Public Works at (734) 429-5624.
