Water Caretakers to check all hydrants in the County

Water caretakers around the county are to be asked to check all hydrants in their area. The move to inspect the hydrants comes after two fires in the county in the last fortnight. Water Services Engineer Ger Mc Namara says there may be blackspots in the county, but it`s difficult to maintain all of the facilities. He says there is a good link between the Fire Service and the Council and they will check the infrastructure over the coming months.
