The Blissfield Public Works Dept. will be conducting a village-wide flushing of water hydrants, from Sunday, June 18 until Friday, June 23, as well as from Sunday, June 25 until Friday, June 30, to remove sediment that accumulates in the water lines. The flushing will be conducted between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. each day to minimize any inconvenience to customers.
