The Alameda County Water District posted this note on its website today:

“A fire hydrant near the intersection of Whipple Road and Horner Street in Union City was sheared off in a hit and run incident on Wednesday morning, causing localized flooding. The water main serving the hydrant was isolated at 9:40 AM, resulting in loss of water service to 22 customers. Water service was restored at 11:30 AM. If you live in the vicinity of the incident you may experience temporary water discoloration, but your tap water still meets all federal and state standards and is safe to drink.”

To learn how to remove the sediment causing the discoloration, residents can call 510-668-6500 or visit
