LARCHMONT - The Westchester Joint Water Works replaced a 50-year-old fire hydrant on Palmer Avenue between Depot Way East and Carleon Avenue Wednesday.
Ken Lindhgem, of the Westchester Joint Water Works, supervised Carducci Paving, the company contracted to restore the street after the old hydrant was removed and the new one was intalled Wednesday.
The owner of Carducci Paving, Benjamin Carducci, as well as the Westchester Joint Water Works crew, arrived at 8 a.m. and had the new hydant installed around 1 p.m.
Hydrants are replaced after a certain amount of time as a preventative measure, said Carducci, who added that the date they are installed appears on the fire hydrant.
