If a fire hydrant is located on your property, you are responsible for ensuring nothing on your land obstructs access to the hydrant. Please keep these maintenance tips in mind throughout the year:
- If you spot a damaged, leaking, or snow covered hydrant, please call 3-1-1.
- Ensure vegetation around or near the hydrant does not impede access (e.g. landscaping, shrubs, trees, etc.) in the summer.
- Residents and contractors are reminded to not pile snow over or against hydrants when clearing pathways and driveways in the winter. Doing so may delay access in emergency situations and is against the City’s Water By-Law.
