A number of fire hydrants in the Arnoldsburg area have been inoperable for some time, according to a report from Arnoldsburg Fire Chief Derek Wright.

After complaints to the Mt. Zion PSD regarding the faulty hydrants resulted in no action, Chief Wright sought the assistance of the WV Public Service Commission.

James Aucremanne, a Consumer Affairs Technician with the WV-PSC advised Wright that the district will be making repairs on the hydrants.

Aucremanne said he had contacted Andy Collins, a volunteer technician, who advised he will have hydrant No. 1 repaired by February 10 if he can use spare parts from another unused hydrant.

In the written response, he indicated the remaining three hydrants that are inoperable need to have parts ordered, which could take up to four weeks.

The WV-PSC indicated the hydrants could be repaired by March 31.
