Fire Hydrant Usage

The fire hydrants in Vernon Township are installed strictly for fire protection.

Any person or organization wishing to obtain water from the hydrants must make arrangements with the water authority prior to obtaining the water.

Under no circumstances should any person or organization procure water from Vernon Township Water Authority lines or hydrants without making arrangements with Vernon Township Water Authority.

Fire Hydrant Maintenance

Businesses located in Vernon Township that have their own fire hydrants should have their hydrants maintained and inspected on a regular basis, to be sure that the hydrant is working properly if needed.

If you would like any additional information about maintenance and inspection of your fire hydrant, please call the Vernon Township Water Authority at (814) 332-0803.
