In Long Beach, some revolutionary new fire hydrants have been turning a lot of heads.
The senator is taking issue with the EPA’s interpretation of a 2011 law. He says Congress didn’t intend for hydrants to be included in the new reduced-lead drinking water standards.
Suffolk County water officials said the typical hydrants can release more than 2,000 gallons of water per minute. Some hydrants remained open for hours causing flooding on roads and properties.
