Iowa – Record snowfall buries fire hydrants

A good reminder that too much snow can kill us in a myriad of ways.

29 Nov 2018 — With the record snowfall that the area received Sunday, Iowa American Water is asking residents who have a fire hydrant on or near their property to take a few minutes to clear away the snow so it is visible in the event of an emergency.

Iowa American Water annually inspects and maintains over 8,100 hydrants in Bettendorf, Blue Grass, Clinton, Davenport, Dixon, LeClaire, Panorama Park and Riverdale.
