Why is my fire hydrant green?
There are over six hundred fire hydrants in the city. Each hydrant is inspected and tested by the fire department to determine the water flow capability in that particular area. The color of your hydrant indicates one of the following flow capabilities:
*red - less than 500 gpm
*orange - 500 - 999 gpm
*green - 1,000 - 1,499 gpm
*blue - 1,500 gpm or more
