[ARCHIVED] East Lansing’s Annual Flushing of Water Mains to Begin Monday, June 6

EAST LANSING, Mich. – The City of East Lansing’s annual flushing of water mains will begin Monday, June 6 and is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete. The flushing will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. each weekday.

The 2016 program will take place in the area east of Abbot Road and south of Lake Lansing Road within East Lansing’s city limits. Remaining areas of the City will be included in future years. Inclement weather or other unusual conditions may alter the project schedule. Any changes will be posted on the City’s website.

During the program, residents within or adjacent to the flushing area may experience a temporary reduction in water pressure and/or cloudy or rusty-colored water. Although the discolored water is safe and does not pose a health concern, residents are encouraged to check their water prior to doing laundry or other home projects in which discolored water could present a problem. Should residents experience discolored water; they are advised to run cold water through a non-aerated faucet, such as a bathtub or outdoor water spigot, for five to 10 minutes until the water becomes clear. Residents are also advised to avoid using hot water before checking the cold water to prevent discolored water from entering their hot water heater. Residents can visit for additional information.

Residents with questions can contact the East Lansing Department of Public Works at (517) 337-9459.
