The first time running through an open fire hydrant is memory I hope my son will have for the rest of his life. It’s like a “City Kids” right of passage to run through the cool water spray on a hot summer day in the city.

I did call 311 to notify them of the open fire hydrant, and I learned that 1,000 gallons of water can be wasted each minute! I hope this will be the last time we see this waste of water, but my son had a blast playing before the city shut it down.
