The design of the cities water system was designed back in the late 70s for a weekend community and lacks a lot of the features that would be put in a new system to be able to isolate certain areas.
The location of this fire hydrant is right next to the MUD plant and hooked on the main.
Normally all fire hydrants have a isolation valve before them but this one didnít for way ever reason.
When the hydrant was hit because of its close proximity to the main, caused the main from the plant to fracture.
The system is not looped. It comes out of the plant and goes down Neptune both ways.
We recently did a valve audit and that hydrant doesnít have a valve on it.
Adding a isolation manifold to that junction along with several other key points is on the list of options for the next bond election we are looking at.
