Flushing fire hydrants is a waste of water. Water conservation is now critical. There is a system that reduces the waste from flushing hydrants: NO-DES. John Balliew, the President/CEO of PSB/EPWU says this about this exciting device:
"As far as our flushing [EPWU's not the Fire Department's], we budgeted the device described in the [embedded video] below and will be purchasing it shortly. We did a pilot test late last year and it works nicely. This truck mounted system allows us to flush for water quality purposes without wasting any water."
Way to go John, the PSB and EPWU! Here's the NO-DES promotional video:
