Hydrant Meter Use

Fire hydrants may not be used for any purpose other than extinguishing fires, training, or for such other purposes as may be agreed upon by the District and the municipality or owner of the private hydrant.  In no case shall fire hydrants be operated by a person other than an agent of the District, except when used for fire protection or training purposes.

If the District approves a request, unless otherwise authorized, the District will install a hydrant meter and will assess a fee of $100 if installed and removed during normal business hours and $165 during non-business hours.
