Hinckley Twp. to flush fire hydrants this week

The Hinckley Fire Department will be flushing fire hydrants, starting today, to help maintain water quality and to evaluate the amount of water available for firefighting purposes.

Fire personnel will be flowing hydrants from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, officials said. The project should be completed by the end of June.

Signs will be placed at the intersections of those streets where work is being performed.

Discoloration to water is likely to appear. Residents are asked to check their water for discoloration prior to cooking and for use in automatic washers and dishwashers. The discoloration can be remedied by running the water for several minutes until the water is clear.

Residents can call (330) 278 – 2591 with questions.

The city of Medina Water Department also will be flushing fire hydrants Mondays through Fridays in June. This week of June 1, hydrants on the following streets will be flushed: Ridgeview Drive, Kenner Circle, Gayer Drive, Simon Lane, Overlook Drive, Valley Drive, Montview Drive east of South Court Street, Kenner Drive, Glenwell Circle, Racoa Place, West Abbey Drive, Wimbleton Drive and Woodlake Drive.
