A Minor Mystery   3 comments

Posted at 10:47 pm in commentary

And by that, I mean it's a mystery to *me*. I'm sure there was something in the paper or posted at Town Hall, or something, but it's the case that for the last year or so fire hydrants all over Forest Acres have been opened and spewing in the streets kind of at random. You'll be driving along on a dry day, and suddenly see a torrent headed for the nearest drainage grate and tracing backwards every time you'll find an open fire hydrant. I don't ever recall seeing that more than once in a blue moon until recently...

  1. For my neighborhood in the Brennen road area, this is to clear the lines. After that huge storm the other day, the water was brown so they open the hydrants and let them run until the existing pipe water is out and clean water is there.

  2. The Columbia Water department regularly opens hydrants to flush the crud out of the lines.

  3. Hmm. That makes sense, but it still seems I never saw it as a frequent thing until very recently..
