Fire Hydrant Maintenance

The fire hydrants in Edgewood are owned and serviced by the Northern Kentucky Water District.  The fire department will test hydrants to ensure function and adequate water flow.  If a hydrant is found inoperable, it will be placed out of service until repaired.

Fire hydrants are painted and striped once every three years.  Hydrants are painted yellow (except for high-pressure hydrants, those are red) to help protect the hydrant from the elements and to increase visibility.  Hydrants are striped with a reflective colored tape to help firefighters identify the flow capacity of the hydrant.

If you see an issue with a hydrant, you may notify us by calling the station or emailing [email protected]
