“Dear PoPville,

3rd or 4th time in a year this fire hydrant has continually run on corner of Webster Street NW and Illinois Ave NW. 5th straight day and 311 has been contacted and if you see on hydrant it says out of service.”

    DC Water is flushing out the hydrant systems. They sent a mailer about it a week ago to areas in Brightwood Park, Brightwood, and North Petworth (NoPe).

    • Lost in the mail?

      Interesting, I live on this block and never received anything about them doing this.

        yeah same, i live right around the corner. oh well. all i know is that my dog enjoys it on a hot afternoon walk.

    • Neighbor

      I received the notice and live 5 houses away. A shame to see so much water wasted, given how hot it has been lately, would have loved to pipe this over to my garden and street trees!
