Fire Hydrant & Meter Information

The department's meters and hydrants program has two functional areas of responsibility:
  • Hydrants are maintained to serve as an emergency water source in the event of a fire.
  • Meters are kept operational to accurately record water consumption for billing purposes.
About 8,700 commercial, residential, and industrial water meters are maintained, repaired, and tested under this program. This department regularly tests and maintains approximately 600 fire hydrants.
