City to Flush Water Mains May 23-27 and May 31-June 3

Water coming out of a fire hydrant.

The City of Fenton Water Department has selected dates for its spring water main flushing program. The city flushes two quadrants of the city in spring and two in the fall.

The Water Department will perform the flushing May 23-27 in Quadrant 2.  Quadrant 4 will see flushing May 31-June 3. Flushing will be performed from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. to minimize the impact of low water pressure. 

Flushing water mains removes minerals and sediment that naturally accumulate in the pipes of the water distribution system. Fire hydrants are used for the flushing process, allowing simultaneous inspection of the hydrants to ensure readiness in case of use for firefighting.

Once flushing is completed, water may appear rust-colored because iron and other mineral deposits in the water mains are stirred by the high velocity water flow associated with the flushing process.   There is no health hazard associated with discolored water, but customers can usually eliminate discolored water by running the cold water tap on all household faucets. City officials recommend waiting a day after any discolored water is flushed from your pipes before doing laundry. 

If you are experiencing discolored water after at least five minutes of cold water flushing at all faucets in your home, please contact the City of Fenton Water Department at 810-629-6347 for assistance.
