Hydrant Security: Taking That First Step

Mueller Co.

Until 9/11, fire hydrant security had more to do with "hindrance" than "prevention." It was the theft of hydrant parts, vandalism and unauthorized operation of hydrants for water that utilities tried to thwart and that hydrant locking devices were intended to address. Since the perceived problem was more one of monetary loss than a threat to health and welfare, available locking devices were often considered effective if they merely discouraged or delayed a would-be vandal or thief long enough to abandon the hydrant.
