Water system flushing begins in Port Huron

The City of Port Huron has begun the process of flushing fire hydrants and water mains in preparation for winter. According to the City Engineer’s office, the work will be done between the hours of 7:30am and 4:30pm in areas north of the Black River to the northern city limits. The city says you should avoid doing laundry during these hours. The entire flushing program should be completed within four weeks. If you notice cloudy water, please run your faucet wide open for 10 to 15 minutes to clear it up. Those with any questions or concerns can call the city at 984-9770.
