Illegal Use of Fire Hydrants

We need your assistance!

In recent weeks, hydrants have been illegally accessed at least three times throughout Town. Hydrant use, especially unauthorized is a major contributor to our recent/present water discoloration issues.

Please contact the Town IMMEDIATELY if you see person(s) tapping into a hydrant. There are emergency numbers listed on the voice mail system if it happens to be after hours.

If possible, take pictures, get vehicle descriptions and/or tag numbers.

Tapping into a hydrant without authorization is considered theft of water and can damage the hydrant and disturb the water system.
