Public Announcements and Upcoming Events
The City of Leslie will begin conducting a directional hydrant flushing
The City will post signs in neighborhoods when Department of Public Works staff are conducting flushing in those areas.
You may experience rusty or cloudy water from this flushing cycle. Once work in your area is complete, run the cold water until it is clear. Do not run hot water, do not do laundry, do not use your dishwasher, and do not add water to your pool until your cold water runs clean. The local laundromat has reported that they do not have issues and welcome people to do laundry at their facility.
Call City Offices at (517) 589-8236 between 8:00am-4:30pm if you have a special medical situation we should be aware of.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this critical main cleaning process.

Message from City Manager, Aaron Desentz
In light of issues that the City of Flint has been struggling with regarding lead levels in their municipal water system, the City of Leslie would like to reassure its water utility customers that the City is in complete compliance with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) standards for safe drinking water. The City treats the municipal water system with phosphates which block corrosion of lead and copper water lines. In September 2015 the City of Leslie conducted lead/copper testing of the municipal water system. In January 2016 the City conducted additional sample collection at the request of the DEQ to expand its sample size and ensure that the Ctiy's water source is not at risk of high levels of lead and/or copper. All of those tests indicated that the City's water source is not at risk of high levels of lead and/or copper. The city continues to work with industry experts and the DEQ to remedy the ongoing iron sediment issue that has been reported.
If you have any questions, please contact the City Offices at (517) 589-8236
