You may have seen this on Tejon Thursday in Colorado Springs.
Springs Utilities crews say they were flushing the water hydrant, seen in the photo above.
Flushing hydrants, the utility company says, is necessary to clear debris from the lines and ensures the hydrants will work properly in case of an emergency.
During times of drought, however, they only flush the hydrant lines when it is absolutely necessary.
