Hydrant Flushing

The CBPU performs City wide hydrant flushing twice a year. Flushing will start with ward 1, then 3, 2 and 4. We recommend doing laundry once crews have flushed hydrants in your area. Also, this is a good time to flush hot water heaters - improving the quality and efficiency. Motorists should use caution in and around areas where hydrant operation is taking place. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 517-279-9531.
