Summit Township will begin its SPRING fire hydrant flushing program on APRIL 27th. Hydrant flushing will take place between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m Monday-Friday and is expected to take 3 weeks to complete. 

Flushing is necessary to wash iron and other sediment out of the water mains. The sediment does not affect water quality, but can cause water to become discolored. The water is safe to drink and discoloration often disappears within a short time. Residents are advised to not wash clothing while lines are being flushed in their area and for motorists to slowdown and use caution if driving past a hydrant being flushed.
