The City of Ann Arbor will provide annual fire hydrant inspection and system maintenance procedures now through Friday, June 30th, by testing the flow and/or flushing water through selected area hydrants. You may observe a fire hydrant with water coming out of the side opening.
The water in your building may have an orange or rusty appearance. The water is safe to use and drink. The iron sediment in the water main being disturbed by the hydrant flushing causes the discoloration. If this occurs, please run your COLD water for several minutes and flush your toilets to clear your lines.
A map of these areas, with the hydrant-flushing boundaries shaded in red, is available at: www.a2gov.org/HydrantFlushing.
