Annual Fall Fire Hydrant Maintenance to Resume in Ann Arbor

Skip Navigation LinksHome » News » News Article

Archived News Release: October 2, 2020 - The City of Ann Arbor's annual fire hydrant inspections and system maintenance will resume Monday, Oct. 5, 2020. This annual process is necessary to prepare for approaching cold temperatures and is conducted to eliminate the potential for frozen hydrants.​

Once winter weather does arrive, residents can also play a role when it comes to fire hydrants. If able, residents should keep fire hydrants adjacent to their property or in their neighborhoods free from snow and ice. Leaving a 3-foot clearing around hydrants can provide easy access for firefighters in the event of fire.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the hydrant maintenance process, please call City of Ann Arbor Customer Service at 734.794.6320 or visit
