Bags Placed Over Select Fire Hydrants
Bagged Fire Hydrant
© City of Brooklyn Park
Brooklyn Park city crews are placing clear, plastic bags over some fire hydrants.
The bags will be in place during the winter to protect hydrants from corrosion caused by deicing salt. Corrosion will ultimately eat through the metal of the hydrant. For now, crews are only placing the bags on hydrants in high traffic areas.
If the hydrant is needed in an emergency, the plastic can be easily ripped off.
