The Lansing Board of Water & Light is scheduled to flush water mains in northwest Lansing beginning the evening of Friday, August 2 and finishing the morning of Monday, August 5. Water main flushing is a routine procedure to remove accumulated sediment and maintain water quality. Flushing has no effect on the water’s safety for drinking or other uses.
About 530 customers are in the areas where the water main flushing will take place. The general boundaries south of W. Saginaw St. are on N. Verlinden Ave. from W. Michigan Ave. to W. Saginaw St. The general boundaries north of W. Saginaw St. are:

Customers may experience fluctuations in water pressure and changes in water clarity during flushing, which will take place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Water will clear and pressure will return to normal shortly after each night’s flushing. Once flushing is finished for the day, customers are advised to run the cold tap water until the water runs clears. Customers in the affected area can call (517) 702-6490 with questions or concerns.
