METCALF, IL. (ECWd) -
Fixing an emergency repair to the Village of Metcalf's water delivery system was a top priority for B&T Drainage out of Marshall, IL. this morning. A hit-and-run on a village fire hydrant last Saturday night left the village without water. They held an emergency meeting on Sunday morning to authorize the hiring of B&T to fix the hydrant.
A natural gas line runs right beside the hydrant, but the gas line was unaffected. The vertical water line was broken underneath the gas main, and a new fire hydrant was needed.
