New Concord hydrant brings water to town line

The town of Concord installed a new fire hydrant Wednesday on Concord Street near Hartwell Road. Hartwell Road begins across the border in Concord, though the homes on the road are all located in Carlisle. Carlisle Fire Chief David Flannery says the hydrant will be available for use to fight fires in Carlisle, in accordance with a mutual aid agreement. However, he must notify Concord if large quantities of water are withdrawn, so that they can monitor and adjust changes in the water pressure in their system. He said, “We have a 20,000-gallon cistern available up on Buttrick Lane and Macone’s Pond on Concord Street on that end of town for water supplies – so with the new hydrant in Concord we have very good coverage there.” ∆
