This week several properties on the 1700 block of Penn Street received communication of a Hydrant Replacement. Upon further inspection, digging and replacing the hydrant and the associated piping is not necessary at this time. Please disregard the notification.
At every opportunity, Capital Region Water attempts to coordinate the phasing of projects and repairs with the City of Harrisburg and other utilities. However, a hydrant in need of repair does become an elevated task for the protection of public safety, and it is not always possible to coordinate.
We apologize for the miscommunication, and related inconvenience this has put on those residents. Thank you for your understanding as we invest in this critical infrastructure.
