Who takes care of fire hydrants?

Category: General Questions
Fire hydrants are installed and maintained by the La Crosse Water Utility. Water customers pay a "Public Fire Protection" charge on their quarterly water bills. This money does not go to the fire department or used to pay for any service provided by the fire department. It is collected and used by the Water Utility to pay for the installation and maintenance of fire hydrants, as well as the water that is used to control fires in our community.
