We Have the best-looking Hydrants in Milford


Bob Fiore has volunteered his time once again to paint the fire hydrants here in Longmeadow. Bob has been doing this for over a decade, however, this time he brought it up a notch, so after using a wire brush on his power drill, he cleaned each hydrant thoroughly, then primed them both before applying two coats of the Connecticut Fire Code approved yellow paint. The fire hydrants were done in four stages, so it took four days to complete.

What Goes Down the Drain....

A hot topic in the news is that sewer systems, municipal and otherwise, have been getting clogged by items like baby wipes and other "wipes" that have made our lives more convenient... but at a steep price when they clog our drain pipes, or even worse, jam the impellers on our sewage pumping stations!  Let’s not wait for the next area crisis to be here at Longmeadow!  So, what is the problem? These convenient wipes have plastic in them for strength and do not dissolve or effectively break down when wet. Under no circumstances should these products (even those advertised as "flushable”) be put down our drains.  Consumer Reports showed recently, that even wipes advertised as "flushable" are anything but flushable. In fact, some of these wipes failed to disintegrate in water after 10 minutes, compared to a few seconds for a piece of toilet tissue.  Add cooking grease, detail floss, and repairs can be in the tens of thousands of dollars, each time.

All Longmeadow residents (and really everyone) are asked to help avoid these costly, messy, if not catastrophic) problems: We all need to avoid using the drains for any other than waste water and toilet paper.  Things like wipes, dental floss, sanitary products, grease, hair, cat litter etc., needs to go into the garbage can/

Please read this web page which talks about 11 things we all should never flush down the toilet (or put down any drain).

Taking it a step further, keeping an eye on what you pout down all your drains can save you and your Association a lot of grief.  Even hair, human or otherwise, can cause clogged drains inside your unit. It is so easy to avoid by putting a screen over the bathtub drain. Use a kitchen sink drain screen to catch food scraps and other stuff that can clog the  pipes in your Unit. Greasy frying pan? Try wiping it with a paper towel first, while it is warm. The pan will be easy to clean and you will avoid putting grease down the drain.

Let's work together to help avoid this "avoidable"  problem!
