City to Perform Spring Water Main Flushing

March 22, 2019 - The City of Midland will begin its annual water main flushing program Monday, March 25.  Hydrants throughout the city will be systematically opened to clean and refresh the city’s drinking water distribution system.   

Water main flushing will begin in the southeast section of Midland and will proceed north, remaining east of Jefferson Avenue.  Following completion of the east side of Midland, flushing west of Jefferson will begin in the southern section and again proceed north.  The entire process should be completed in approximately 10 weeks.

Water main flushing sometimes results in discolored water.  While not harmful, tap water may appear orange in color for 5 to 15 minutes.  Residents should avoid doing laundry while their water is discolored. 

The City’s annual maintenance program helps ensure a high level of water quality by preventing corrosion and maintaining a proper disinfection residual.  Information regarding daily flushing activities will be posted on the City’s website at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov and via MCTV Cable Channel 99. 

Contact the Water Distribution Office at 989-837-6950 with any questions.
