Hydrants get a new look

At the request of the Water Commissioners, Water Department Superintendent Mike Bergeron has been refinishing the town’s fire hydrants. He removed the old paint, treated the metal for rust prevention, primed and repainted them with a special paints for hydrants.,

These hydrants, restored to their original glory, are along Route 31 in the downtown area.

The Commissioners hope to hire an outside contractor to redo the remaining hydrants.
