During the last few weeks the fire hydrants on Lakeshore Dr and other streets in my neighborhood have been turned and left on for several hours at a time. Do we have a water problem? Why is it necessary to do this several times a week.

We do not have a water problem. Flushing is considered as routine maintenance. Flushing allows us to maintain proper water age and disinfectant levels in our system. Flushing is generally required on cul-de-sac streets during the fall when water usage decreases while temperatures remain in the 70's and 80's. If you have additional questions, please contact me at 972-292-5810. Thanks.
