Dover on lookout for ‘brown’ water after accident

DOVER – The city of Dover’s Electric Department informed its customers this morning there was a fire hydrant struck in an accident near Legislative Hall and a large amount of water flowed before Public Works arrived to shut it down.

It warned its customers that in these instances there is an increase in the possibility of brown water and said if anyone experiences “brown” water they should turn their outside spigot on or run their cold water inside until it runs clear.
