Agency to flush fire hydrants Wednesday


Hampstead's Water Department will begin systematically flushing all fire hydrants about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Residents are advised to draw enough water that evening for morning consumption.

The average house system contains less than 100 gallons of water.

It also would be advisable to refrain from doing laundry through Thursday.
