City of Ishpeming Water System/Hydrant Flushing
The City of Ishpeming DPW will begin water system flushing on September 29th, 2022. Flushing will generally occur between the hours of 7 am and 3 pm and will take up to four weeks to flush the entire system.
Generally speaking, flushing will begin at the north end of town (Eighth Addition) and progress southward. Some deviations will occur as flushing approaches the water storage tank.
When flushing occurs in your neighborhood, the accumulated sediment in the water mains will be stirred up and much of the sediment will be flushed out of the system. However, due to limitations on the system, some sediment will remain, causing discolored water. If your water appears discolored it is recommended that you give it time to clear up then run your cold water faucet for a few minutes to make sure the discolored water is cleared. We recommend water customers avoid washing laundry during the period hydrants are flushed in their area. Water service should not be interrupted and no boil advisories are required as a result of this process.
Please contact the DPW at 486-9371 with any questions or concerns you might have.

Notice of Construction
The City of Ishpeming has awarded the contract for construction of the Campground along Malton Road. Construction will begin immediately (June 15, 2022) and is expected to continue until September 2, 2022. This schedule is subject to change.
Residents and Visitors should be aware that all trails crossing through the construction site are CLOSED 6AM – 6PM Daily beginning June 15, 2022. Heavy Equipment will be in the area and for the safety of everyone, the area must remain free of Bikes, Riders, Horses, Walkers, etc.
A rustic Campground is a natural fit to this landscape and will ultimately improve access to many of the local trail systems by creating an inviting place to stay while enjoying a visit. These trail systems offer direct access to the City of Ishpeming and its variety of local services.
Our contractors are aware that not all people will get the notice and be working carefully to contain their work, mark the area and be watchful for users on the trails. We ask that the community help to raise awareness and please avoid the area when closed.
Traveling along Malton Road, you can expect to see “work area”, “trucking” and other signs alerting to construction. Please drive cautiously through the area.← Older posts
