It’s Hydrant Flushing Time!

This, from the city:

(La Vergne, May 2, 2011) The city of La Vergne will be flushing hydrants starting this week,according to Water Department Supervisor Lloyd Adkins. Residents may experience somereduction in water pressure while a hydrant near a home or business is being flushed.
The hydrants located on dead-end streets only will be flushed starting at the Water TreatmentPlant on Bon Aqua Drive and the project will end at Waldron Road and Rock Springs Roadabout three months from now, weather permitting.
In accordance with guidelines of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation,the hydrants are flushed twice yearly.
Contact the Public Works Department at (615) 793-9891 with any questions.

Did any of y’all play in the hydrants when you were kids, ever? In my small-town Midwestern upbringing, they would come to flush out the hydrants and all the kids would come running and play in them for awhile. What fun.
