Hydrant Replacement Project

We have kicked off a hydrant replacement project, which will replace approx. 50 hydrants in Kingslake Forest Subdivision and Greensbrook Section 1 Subdivision. This project will provide much needed reliability on hydrants in the event of a fire in the community. Eventually all fire hydrants will be replaced in the District.

Hydrants have been in the District since 1975, with some being rusted out and needing replacement for safety reasons, including ADA compliance. Some of the replacements can be seen below, where they are removing hydrants from sidewalks and relocating them to another area.
