The City of Wyoming is responsible for repairing and maintaining the following water system related items within the City.
Flushing Program / Hydrants
The City of Wyoming cleans approximately half of the public water mains each year. This is accomplished by operating all of the fire hydrants, which flushes out the abutting water main. Whenever possible, prior notification is made to the abutting property occupants. This work is performed at night to avoid inconveniencing residents as much as possible.
Occasionally residents will experience (1) tap water discoloration, which can be resolved by letting the water run for a few minutes until clear and/or (2) lawn damage due to running water, which will be repaired with topsoil and hydro mulch. Additional information is available by contacting the Public Works department at (616) 530-7260.
Information about the location of existing water services is available from the Engineering department.
