Deputies investigate open hydrants
January 25, 2011
Four fire hydrants were opened and left running by someone on Sunday night.
East Fork Deputy Chief Steve Tognoli said the department started receiving calls at 10:54 p.m. for the hydrant at East Valley and Amber Way.
The next call came in for a hydrant on Tedsen Lane, then Bollen Circle and Sheridan Lane.
The open hydrants caused some erosion.
“They can cause all kinds of damage and waste a lot of water,” Tognoli said. “It’s not a good thing.”
East Fork Fire District and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incidents.
