Fire hydrants in the City of Brenham will be getting a fresh look.
Beginning Monday 500 of Brenham’s fire hydrants will be part of a fire hydrant restoration project. The City’s Water Construction Department, in partnership with DMD Consultants, will begin sand blasting, prime coating and painting the hydrants to National Fire Protection Association standards.
Brenham residents and businesses are being asked to keep cars parked aware from all fire hydrants during this work period. All decorations should be moved at least 10 feet from fire hydrants. And any vegetation growing near hydrants should be trimmed at least 5 feet in all directions. The work will be done between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. each day and should take approximately six weeks to complete.
