The Southington Water Department offers our commercial and industrial customers a hydrant inspection and maintenance program. For a fee of $145.00 each hydrant, plus applicable sales tax, we will inspect the fire hydrants on your property and report any maintenance issues that need to be corrected. The inspection includes inspection of the nozzles, nuts, bolts, packing, drainage testing, flow testing, pressure testing, operating the branch valve and inspecting the valve box and cover. After the inspection, the customer will receive a report highlighting any problems with our recommendations. The report should be forwarded to the Fire Department by the owner.
To request an inspection the Commercial Hydrant Inspection Form should be completed and mailed in with a check. Upon receipt, the customer will be contacted to schedule the inspection.
The Department is currently seeking candidates for a Water Treatment Foreman.
