Water Flushing Details

May 7th, 2019

Hydrant & Water Main Flushing / Water Quality Report

Dear Resident & Business’:

Infrastructure Alternatives, Inc. staff has scheduled flushing of the hydrants and water mains in the Charter Township of Haring.  

There are three (3) flushing events that will take place this calendar year. 

The first flush will occur over a 3 day period from May 21st-23rd.  

The first day of flushing, May 21st, will be performed along Boon Rd to the east of N. Mitchell. 

The second day of flushing, May 22nd, we will be flushing from along Boon Rd to the west on N. Mitchell and along N. Mitchell south of Boon Rd. 

The third day, May 23rd, we will be flushing the North Park / Pine View residential area. All flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00AM-6:00PM.

The second flush will occur from August 6th-8th. The same areas will be flushed in the same order as explained above. The flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00AM-6:00PM.

The third flush will occur from October 8th-10th. The same areas will be flushed in the same order as explained above. The flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00AM-6:00PM.

 

Important:  Your cooperation is needed to make the flushing program successful.  Please note the following recommendations.

1.       Avoid using water during the time period when water flushing will be performed in your area.

2.       If appropriate, turn off and by-pass your water softening system the morning of when flushing is scheduled to be performed in your area. Do not return your softener to service until after you have flushed your water line (See number 4).

3.       Turn off any automatic water systems, such as time-delayed dishwashers or timed lawn sprinkling systems.

4.       One hour after the scheduled flushing is performed, prior to using water in your home, open the faucet closest to the point where the water enters your home.  Allow the water to run into the nearest drain until it runs clear.  If appropriate, return your water softener or automatic water systems to service.


*If needed, there is no issue with using water while the water system is being flushed. If you do need to use your water during the scheduled flushing times, we recommend running water until clear before use.

During these flushing dates, it is a perfect time for customers to flush the plumbing inside of their homes/businesses if desired. To accomplish a proper flushing throughout the plumbing in your home and your service line, open all of your faucets and let the cold water run for 10-15 minutes.

Also, this is a good time to cycle the water in your hot water heater. To cycle all of the water through your water heater, turn on all the hot water faucets in your home/business until the water runs cold. Again, this is only a recommendation and is not required.

If you have any questions, concerns, experience water quality or pressure problems, please contact IAI staff at (231)577-8793.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Bob Polanic | Project Manager IAI
