Water Flushing Program


Water Flushing Schedule for 2016
  
The City of Midland’s annual water main flushing program began on Tuesday, March 8, 2016. Water main flushing started in the southeast section of the city and will proceed west to Jefferson Ave, then north to the city limits remaining on the east side of Jefferson Avenue.  Following completion of the east side of the Jefferson Ave., flushing will commence on the west side of Jefferson Ave, again starting in the southern sections and proceeding north to the city limits.

Upon completion of the entire city limits, crews will then begin flushing in the townships that are served by the City of Midland Water Division. The following townships are served by our crews: Midland, Homer, Larkin and Mills townships. These townships will be completed in the order listed. 
 
This annual maintenance program flushes water mains in an effort to ensure a high level of water quality. The process helps prevent corrosion and maintain a proper disinfection residual.  

Water main flushing sometimes results in discolored water.  While not harmful, tap water may appear orange in color for 5 - 15 minutes.  Residents should avoid doing laundry while their water is discolored.

Please check back to this website for daily updates as we move through the water system.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City of Midland Water Distribution office at 989-837-6950 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
