NEW FIRE HYDRANT COLORS
The Southington Water Department has begun flow testing and painting all 1,389 public hydrants throughout the town of Southington. This process will take place over the next few years.
The colors on the newly painted hydrants were discussed with the Fire Department and were selected in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s recommendations for marking hydrants. Each color corresponds with the hydrant classification determined by flow rate in gallons per minute (gpm). The barrels of all public hydrants will be painted yellow. The caps and nozzles will be painted in accordance with the NFPA directive of light blue, green, orange, and red. The color codes provide valuable information to the Fire Department in its efforts to fight a fire.
Private fire hydrants are not the responsibility of the Southington Water Department. The Southington Fire Department has requested all private hydrant barrels be painted red with the caps painted in accordance with the NFPA color coding system. For any questions pertaining to maintenance and flow testing of private fire hydrants, please contact the Southington Water Department at 860-628-5593.
