“In the system pending repairs” but this must’ve been leaking a loooong time


“Dear PoPville,

Leaky Fire Hydrant Causing Algae Growth. The fire hydrant at 15th and U St NW has been leaking (with an out-of-order sign attached to it) for weeks. So long, in fact, that it’s causing algae to grow on the sidewalk.”

Another reader flagged this over the weekend and DC Water has replied:

“This hydrant is in the system pending repairs. Thanks guys.”

Ed. Note: DC Water is very responsive on twitter (and here) so don’t hesitate to contact them should encounter a water issue.
