Water Flushing Program


Water Flushing Schedule for Fall 2016


  
The City of Midland’s township water main flushing program began on Monday, October 10, 2016 City of Midland Water Distribution crews will begin a water main flushing program in the townships that it serves. Fire hydrants throughout the townships of Homer, Larkin, Midland and Mills will be systematically opened to clean and refresh the drinking water distribution system.   

 Water main flushing will begin in Midland and Homer Townships south of Isabella Rd, then proceed north of Isabella Rd. Once Midland and Homer Townships are complete, crews will move into Larkin Township, then concluding with Mills Township. The entire process should be completed in approximately 5 weeks.

 Water main flushing sometimes results in discolored water.  While not harmful, tap water may appear orange in color for five to 15 minutes.  Residents should avoid doing laundry while their water is discolored. 

 The City’s flushing program helps ensure a high level of water quality by preventing corrosion and maintaining a proper disinfection residual. 

Please check back to this website for daily updates as we move through the water system.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City of Midland Water Distribution office at 989-837-6950 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
