We allow tanker trucks, contractors, and other permitted users to use designated fire hydrants as a temporary water supply. Temporary hydrant use permits are issued based on use:
Non transient—Use of a single hydrant to supply water for a construction site.
Transient—Use of any designated hydrants to fill tanker trucks.
Transient users must meet our backflow prevention requirements and have a backflow inspection before a permit will be issued. For non transient users, CWS will install the hose and backflow prevention assembly on the hydrant. More info: Temporary Fire Hydrant Water Use Manual.
