A vehicle hit a fire hydrant in the Dianda Plaza shopping center on Clayton Rd. in Concord this weekend.

The hydrant is was located in between Food Maxx and Dairy Queen.

Dairy Queen’s water was shut off for a while, but it’s back on now.

No injuries were reported.

Thanks to Jessica for the picture!

Oh, this is wonderful! 😀

All that water going to waste May 26, 2014 at 9:36 PM

just because of some jerk of a driver, possibly talking on her phone. Otherwise, a nice shot of Mt.Diablo in the background.

Well that’s one way to cool off!

Looks like she/he tried to take it to go.

Back to zero on days without an accident

@Hydrant Management – can’t you train the silly hydrants to stop playing chicken with vehicles?

I’d been wanting to see another hydrant erupting.

Thanks, stupid driver!

This has to be one of the finest.... May 27, 2014 at 3:27 AM

hydrantcide photos ever posted on Claycord. The image of the slain hydrant is especially poignant.

who’s the jackwad trying to dip his feet in?

Did Ace Hardware have a big enough shut off valve to turn the water off?

More wanton hydrantcide!

I think that’s the person who hit the hydrant. Not someone stopping to play!!

I agree with the driver. This shopping center is so much more attractive with a water feature. ‘I’m singin in the rain….’.
That is the problem with Concord, it’s too dry, not enough ponds. Good ingenuity.

Please let us know when the services will be held. I will send flowers.

OK, color me terrible….but I think these fountains are so beautiful! Oh, to have been able to order a turtle Blizzard ( chocolate and pecans added) and to sit outside enjoying the cooling spray!

Calculate the number of cubic feet lost and send the driver a bill for repairs and cost of water………..or reduce that amount from his/her home use….

Is there a fine for running over a fire hydrant? If not, there should be (I’m sure they are not cheap to replace)!

I like foonman’s (#17) suggestion.

WOW those Fire Hydrants just love jumping into car paths

BusBoy May 27, 2014 at 5:47 PM

Just wondering but how fast do you need to be moving to have a fire hydrant be that far from its original planting??

La Grinch May 27, 2014 at 5:47 PM

What is the current total on the hydrantacide watch now? Mr. Mayor – maybe this site needs a graphic of hydrant ‘kills’ ?

Ladybug May 27, 2014 at 9:16 PM

About time Curly!

Waterboy May 28, 2014 at 3:56 PM
