Clearing Snow from Fire Hydrants

The Hartford Water Utility maintains more than 930 fire hydrants within the City of Hartford. These are critical components to the City’s public safety. This year, we are once again reminding our customers to help remove snow from around our hydrants by maintaining a 3-foot area around the hydrant and a shoveled path to the street. This makes access to the hydrant easy for Hartford’s Volunteer Fire Department during an emergency.
