Hundreds of people around Lansing might have a brown tint to their water during the next few weeks.

The Lansing Board of Water and Light will be flushing water mains in the Colonial Village area starting this week. The process is expected to last until Friday, October 11.

The general boundaries of the area are:
• Bordered on the north by Mt. Hope
• Bordered on the south by railroad tracks (near Holmes)
• Bordered on the east by Martin Luther King Blvd.
• Bordered on the west by Pleasant Grove

Water main flushing is a routine procedure to remove sediment and maintain water quality. Customers may experience fluctuations in water pressure and changes in water clarity during flushing. Water will clear and pressure will return to normal shortly after each day's flushing. The procedure will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Once flushing is finished for the day, customers are advised to run the cold water tap until the water runs clear.

While discolored water is safe to drink, customers may prefer to draw some tap water into a pitcher and refrigerate it the night before.

Customers in the affected area can call (517) 702-6490 with questions or concerns.
