We don't know whether it was because we filed three reports with 311, followed by an "agency complaint," or because we publicized the problem here, or because the Department of Environmental Conservation just felt like getting around to it now, but the DEP finally, on Feb. 10,  fixed the hydrant on East 13th Street in Midwood,  which had been left uprooted out of the ground since last December.

Hydrants are important. Fining car owners for parking a few minutes too long at a meter may be a questionable city practice, but imposing penalties for parking in front of a hydrant is completely justified. We hope that next time the DEP is made aware of  an uprooted or broken hydrant, it will respond a little sooner than nearly three months.
