City of Flint Flushing Fire Hydrants
The City of Flint’s Water Service Center will be doing fire hydrant flushing in the College Cultural and downtown areas today (7/30) and possibly lasting until tomorrow. The city says the hydrant flushing is in response to localized complaints of discolored water. According to a news release, residents may see increased water cloudiness for a short period of time, but the water will still be safe to drink. The water throughout the city meets all DEQ required drinking water standards and the hydrant flushing is part of the normal water quality and system maintenance as part of the city’s effort to provide high quality water to its residents and businesses.
