Hydrant Inspection

Hydrant Inspection

Fire Hydrant Inspection Schedule:

All Northville Township fire hydrants are inspected annually by Northville Township's Department of Public Services.

Fire Hydrant Inspection Process:

Upon arriving at a fire hydrant location the fire hydrant is given a visual inspection. Generally, we are looking for broken chains, flanges and bolts. We also note whether the fire hydrant needs painting. Next, we remove the steamer cap and activate the fire hydrant. We allow the fire hydrant to run long enough so that the water system is flushed. Upon completion we pump out the stack, grease the steamer threads and replace the steamer cap. We then record the fire hydrant location with our GPS equipment. Prior to leaving, we attach a new inspection tag.
