Maintenance program for Broadway fire hydrants underway
Routine maintenance of fire hydrants along Broadway and some of the streets that connect with Broadway will take place over the next month.
Blue Heron Hydrant has been contracted to do the work which involves water blasting to remove old paint, applying primer (which will appear grey for a short period of time), and then repainting. This maintenance is completed on all hydrants periodically over their lifespan.
The project is expected to start just before Labour Day weekend and be completed by the end of September, with 50 hydrants on the work plan.
