Residents Reminded to "Run Their Water" After Water Main BreaksThe City of Dearborn Heights has experienced a number of water main breaks over the past several weeks. In many cases, small amounts of rust coloration are released into the water supply as the repairs are being made. If you experience this discoloration in your water, you should simply run it for a short period (10-15 minutes) until the discoloration dissipates and your water appears clear again.Although not harmful if consumed, laundering white or light-colored fabrics in discolored water could result in rust-colored stains.
