Water Flushing Program


Water Flushing Schedule for Spring 2017


 
The City of Midland began its annual water main flushing program on Tuesday, March 21, 2017. Hydrants throughout the city will be systematically opened to clean and refresh the city's drinking water distribution system.

Water main flushing will began in the southeast section of Midland and will proceed north, remaining east of Jefferson Avenue. Following completion of the east side of Midland, flushing west of Jefferson will begin in the southern section and again proceed north. The entire process should be completed in approximately 10 weeks.

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

The City's annual maintenance program helps to ensure a high level of water quality by preventing corrosion and maintaining a proper disinfection residual. 

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.
