Wyoming, Mich., August 16, 2011 – The City of Wyoming Public Works Department will be performing the water maintenance process of water main-flushing beginning on Sunday, August 21 and continuing for several weeks.
Crews will systematically operate, inspect and repair all 3,500 fire hydrants on the city’s water distribution system. The work will take place each night, weather permitting, from 9 p.m. through 6:30 a.m. until all hydrants have been checked. They will be flushing the hydrants at their full capacity for a short time in order to flush any sediment from the water main. This maintenance work ensures good water quality throughout the system.
Residents may notice cloudy or rusty water when they first turn on the tap in these affected neighborhoods. Letting the water run for a minute or two usually clears the line.
