The City of Ann Arbor Water Utilities Dept. conducts annual fire hydrant flushing beginning every spring and continuing on a weekly basis through the fall.
This annual maintenance is done to remove minerals and sediment that accumulate in the water lines over the course of a year. This preventative maintenance also allows us to check and record water pressure to ensure the water system is functioning properly.
The city anticipates working on the hydrants in the areas in the attached weekly press releases, posted on the right column on this page. In addition, click here for a map of the areas to be flushed.
