City Water Department crews are busy throughout University City performing fire hydrant preventative maintenance such as testing water pressure and valve function. Fire hydrants are also getting a fresh coat of paint. The bright yellow color makes them easier to find in the event of a fire emergency. The next time you walk through your neighborhood, take a look around. Where are the hydrants closest to your home? If they have a fresh coat of paint, you’ll know they have also had a maintenance check. If you notice a hydrant leak or knock over, call the Water Department at 619-515-3525.
There are many things you can do to reduce the chance of a fire at your home. For more information, visit:
