Fire hydrants that are installed on an individual's property are typically private, while public hydrants are those that are found in public areas and are maintained by the City. Typically public hydrants are yellow and private hydrants are red. Maintenance of private fire hydrants is the responsibility of the owner/occupant.
Sometimes hydrants are left flowing to clear out a line due to work performed. Further questions can be directed to the City's Water Department at 239-321-8100.
No, the Fort Myers Fire Department is not responsible for maintaining fire hydrants. Please contact the City's Water Department at 239-321-8100 with any issues relating to any public fire hydrant.
