Fire hydrant replacements to cause water interruptions

Fire hydrant replacements to cause water interruptions
Friday, June 27, 2014 - 3:01pm

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) will replace water hydrants during the week of June 30, which will cause temporary water interruptions for some BPUB customers.

The fire hydrant replacement project is an effort by BPUB to ensure hydrants all over the city are in good working condition and don’t leak. Over time, hydrants can develop water leaks. Replacing hydrants reduces water losses and increases water availability.

The table below shows the areas scheduled for work, when the work is scheduled as well as the approximate number of customers expected to be impacted.

Residents living in the area of the work could see a temporary water interruption. BPUB apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause and wants to assure residents the work will ensure safe operations of these hydrants. Fliers will be distributed to affected residents, and updates will also be available at the BPUB website at
