City fire hydrant flushing continues

Employees from the City of Plymouth Department of Municipal Services will be performing annual, routine hydrant flushing and testing for approximately one month, according to a prepared statement from the city.

During that time, residents could experience lower than normal water pressure and/or discolored water for a brief time. If either of these conditions occurs, residents should run cold water through the tap for several minutes to flush out the plumbing pipes.

Discoloration that may occur is due to natural minerals in the water being stirred up in the hydrant flushing process. 

The water will remain safe to drink at all times throughout this process, officials stressed.

Questions can be directed to the Municipal Services Department at or (734) 453-7737.
