Hydrant maintenance under way

The Department of Municipal Services crews will be performing their annual, routine hydrant flushing and testing in the City of Plymouth during the month of October. Residents may experience lower than normal water pressure and/or discolored water in their homes for a brief time as the regular maintenance continues. Officials suggest that residents run the cold water for several minutes to flush out the plumbing if the situation occurs. Discoloration that may occur is due to natural minerals in the water being stirred up in the hydrant flushing process, officials noted. The water will remain safe to drink at all times throughout this process, they added. For more information, contact the Plymouth Municipal Services Department at or (734) 453-7737.
