Goochland County Fire-Rescue began their annual testing and preventative maintenance program for dry hydrants on April 16, 2021.
Dry hydrants in ponds, lakes, and streams throughout the county are a relied upon means of rural water supply to support fire suppression.
Cannon’s Service,LLC, will perform the preventive maintenance and inspection for this project. Additionally, a diver will conduct an underwater inspection of the piping and strainer. You will see them throughout the county over the next several weeks.
The dry hydrant inspections started in the eastern end of the county and will progress westward. Estimated project completion will be early summer. Fire-Rescue’s Training, Health & Safety Officer, Chan Rowland, is coordinating this year’s project and may be contacted via cell 804-556-5304 or email email@example.com.
