The City of Flint Water Service Center is expected to flush fire hydrants today and possibly into tomorrow in order to correct an issue with the water.

The flushing is scheduled to take place in the College Cultural and downtown areas. City officials say that this is in response to complaints about discolored water.

Cloudy water could happen while the flushing is taking place; however, the water will continue to be safe to drink according to officials. A release from the city says that the water in the city meets all Department of Environmental Quality standards.
