Charlevoix Township’s water department will be performing hydrant flushing on the following dates.
May 13th-17th, 9am to 5pm. We will be flushing the “South Side” hydrants .
May 20th-24th, 9am to 5pm. We will be flushing the “North Side” hydrants .
During this time, customers may notice episodes of decreased water pressure or discoloration of their water. Water discoloration results from temporary disturbances of the normal water flow within our piping network. These short-term changes in flow can stir up naturally occurring minerals and sediment that settle within the water mains. The objective of the water main/hydrant flushing program is to remove these accumulated sediments from our pipes by flushing the water out of the fire hydrants. If your water becomes discolored please run your water thru a non-aerator faucet until water is clear.
Thank You for your time and patience as we perform these routine services on our system.
