 +===== Please Keep Hydrants Clear of Foliage =====
 +This is a request that we typically make in the dead of winter when the snow is piled high around the fire hydrants in the SHAES area. Please help us now if there is foliage concealing from the street a hydrant where you live. Time is of the essence when we arrive on a fire scene so being able to locate the fire hydrant quickly is of great help. Thank You.
 +===== Hydrant Flushing Underway =====
 +SHAES staff is currently flushing the water system and fire hydrants in the City of South Haven and Casco and South Haven Townships. ​ This process will continue until the all hydrants have been inspected and flushed.
 +This is necessary to clean particulates and sediment from the system. If you have discolored water at your residence, run the water until it clears and also run your washing machine through one cycle to clear water from the lines and the machine.
