Seagate Village is getting new fire hydrants in February

 Residents of Seagate Village in Myrtle Beach will see new fire hydrants being installed in coming weeks.  The former Air Force Base housing was built in 1956, and that’s when the existing fire hydrants were installed.  The city is changing them out to a newer model which allows for larger water flows.  The new ones will produced up to 600 gallons of water more per minute.  The $183,000 project will replace 32 fire hydrants in all during the month of February.  Residents will be notified with door hangers if a water outage is required.  Greenwall Construction is the contractor.
