Do I have to clear snow from fire hydrants in the winter?
Yes, if your property is adjoining the boulevard/right of way where the hydrant is, or if the hydrant is on your property, it is your responsibility to help keep the hydrant clear of snow. Our city of West Fargo Fire Code indicates that unobstructed access to fire hydrants shall be maintained at all times. A three (3) foot clear space shall be maintained around the circumference of all fire hydrants. The fire department shall not be deterred or hindered from gaining immediate access.
