Fair Oaks Water District (FOWD) has strategically located fire hydrants throughout the FOWD service area for the health and safety of our customers.
Any use of a FOWD fire hydrant, including construction water, dust control, fire department training, swimming pool filling, etc., is unauthorized and requires a permit.
Fire Hydrants Maintenance Program
FOWD has established a program for the regular maintenance and operation of FOWD fire hydrants. Per FOWD standards and specifications, FOWD-owned fire hydrants will maintain a three-foot clearance and will be painted white. If you see a FOWD fire hydrant that needs maintenance, please contact FOWD.
Other Fire Hydrant Uses - Permit Required
FOWD requires a permit for fire hydrant use other than for emergency firefighting and FOWD purposes. Please contact FOWD to obtain a permit.
FOWD requires a FOWD-approved meter and backflow device to be installed on the fire hydrant for all authorized (permit) use. If you see a FOWD fire hydrant being used without a meter and backflow device, please contact FOWD.
