Carrollton Utilities will flush fire hydrants on the City of Carrollton water system, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 21. Hydrant flushing is done each year at this time to remove all sediment in the mains and to make sure all hydrants are working properly. Carrollton Utilities suggests laundry should not be washed while crews are flushing the hydrants as some staining of clothes could occur.

The rider steers with a rope connected to the front axle–safety blocks keep him from turning too much–and stops by pulling a simple friction brake that drags on the ground.
