A citizen recently reported seeing officials checking out hydrants in Old Colorado City. This does not necessarily mean there were problems with any of them,
according to Natalie Sibert of Colorado Springs Utilities.
The city enterprise, which is responsible for the hydrants' maintenance, has been inspecting the Old Colorado City units in keeping with an ongoing schedule. “We're in a continuous cycle of inspecting hydrants all the time,” she said. “In two years, we complete a full cycle through the entire system, and then we start over and do it again.”
The recent round of inspections occurred in a corridor (called “Old Colorado City” by Utilities) which is about two blocks wide along Colorado Avenue, between Sierra Madre Street and Ridge Road. In that corridor, some hydrants required repairs and a few needed replacement, Sibert said.
