FIRE HYDRANT FLUSHING Revised Schedule

Due to the anticipated inclement weather, hydrant flushing has been postponed. The work will now occur between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:30 pm from Wednesday, September 29 through Wednesday, October 6, 2021, excluding Saturday and Sunday. This work will also occur between 12:00 am to 7:00 am on Wednesday, September 29.

Please plan your water use accordingly. The procedure may cause some disturbances and discoloration in the water system following the flushing of the hydrants in your area as well as the day following. Customers may also experience a temporary drop in pressure as well. Please refrain from washing white or light colored clothes during the flushing period.

If you experience discoloration and rust particles in your water, please run your cold water faucets only for approximately 10 minutes to clear the discolored water from your system. If the water is still discolored after running the cold water for 10 minutes, please turn off the faucet and repeat the previous step one hour later.

If you still continue to experience discolored water, please contact the City of Brighton at 810.844.5113 or dps@brightoncity.org.
